Spent the morning looking at LaTeX layout and I have learned a few things:
1) There's a reason everyone uses the same templates like book or memoir: they do an awful lot of the heavy lifting for you.
2) There's more than one way to do things, and many of them have subtle knock-on effects that you won't notice until it's too late.
3) Boy howdy this thing is powerfully addicting. Even something as simple as \lipsum[1-5] in memoir with a little bit of formatting just looks so damn good.
Also surprising that Packt's LaTeX books are actually good. Usually Packt books are barely competent at conveying anything that isn't covered in documentation, but overall these books have useful tidbits that I'm finding helpful.
