2.1. "Why I like LaTeX"

The following is what I normally use to print a 10 envelope; fill in the blanks for FROM and TO addresses, then:

tex envelope.tex; dvips -t landscape -m envelope.dvi

    % envelope.tex
    % Print a #10 envelope
    
    \font\cmssa = cmss12
    \font\cmssc = cmss14
    
    %setup:
    
    \parindent 0 pt\nopagenumbers\parskip 10 pt
    \hsize 9.5 in\vsize 3.25 in
    \voffset 3.5 in
    \cmssc

    FROM-STREET ADDRESS
    
    FROM-CITY, STATE, \ ZIP
    
    \vskip .5 in\vskip 15 pt\parindent 3 in
    
    TO-NAME
    
    TO-STREET ADDRESS
    
    TO-CITY, STATE, \ ZIP
    \end
