How to set the depth of the table of contents

\setcounter{tocdepth}{n}
where n is the level, starting with 0 (chapters only)

also, there's a package "tocvsec2" in case you need to vary the depth by section


I discovered the useful bibliography style agu.bst


You can get your text to wrap around your figures using wrapfig .

Fonts

It is necessary to find the right copy of updmap.cfg and make sure it has the ".map" file for your font in it:

$ tail ~/.texmf-config/web2c/updmap.cfg 
# FPL, free substitutes for the commercial Palatino SC/OsF fonts
# are available from CTAN:fonts/fpl; used by psnfss 9.2.
Map fpls.map
#! Map example.map
Map ugm.map
Map pad.map
Map myfonts.map
Since then I've added "pgs.map" for Gill Sans.

My texmf trees turned out to be in several places:

 
$ sudo texhash
texhash: Updating ~/.texmf-config/ls-R... 
texhash: Updating ~/.texmf-var/ls-R... 
texhash: Updating ~/Library/texmf/ls-R... 
texhash: Updating /sw/etc/texmf-config/ls-R... 
texhash: Updating /sw/share/texmf/ls-R... 
texhash: Updating /sw/share/texmf-dist/ls-R... 
texhash: Updating /sw/share/texmf-local/ls-R... 
texhash: Updating /sw/var/lib/texmf/ls-R... 
texhash: Done.

You also have to run updmap.

Some font stuff that is usually in my latex preambles:

\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
%%\usepackage[applemac]{inputenc}
\usepackage{textcomp}

\usepackage{pslatex}

\usepackage{palatino}
%%\usepackage{xagaramon}
%%\usepackage{garamond}
%%\usepackage{bookman}

(with the "garamond" package it is apparently necessary to put the command
\garamond
in the text to make it actually use URW Garamond as the default font.)

Non-Italicized Greek Letters

\usepackage{bm}
\usepackage{upgreek}
\makeatletter
\newcommand{\bfgreek}[1]{\bm{\@nameuse{up#1}}}
\makeatother
\parindent=0pt
%% The default upright $\upmu$. Written with \verb|$\upmu$| in mathmode.

%% \verb|$\bfgreek{mu}$| will allow you to type $\bfgreek{mu}$ to obtain an upright boldface $\mu$.
\newcommand{\micamp}{\mbox{$\bfgreek{mu}$A}}
\newcommand{\micronup}{\mbox{$\bfgreek{mu}$m}}
