American Mathematical Society plain TeX macros

AMSTeX is a TeX macro package, originally written by Michael

Spivak for the American Mathematical Society (AMS) during 1983-

1985 and is described in the book 'The Joy of TeX'. It is based

on Plain TeX, and provides many features for producing more

professional-looking maths formulas with less burden on

authors. More recently, the focus of attention has switched to

amslatex, but AMSTeX remains as a working system.
