Hypertext Help with LaTeX

LaTeX provides a number of different paragraph-making environments. Each environment begins and ends in the same manner.

Blank lines before the \begin{} or after the \end{} cause a paragraph break before or after the environment. Blank lines after the \begin{} or before the \end{} are ignored.

All declarations have an environment of the same name. However, the reverse does not always work. For example, {\abstract Abstract text ... .} may not give correct paragraph breaks.
