If you want your own copy of OzTeX, you can get it from the
page. OzTeX is shareware, but Brandeis has a site licence that allows you to use it without paying the shareware fee. If you want to see the OzTeX
documentation, you can find it in a file called
ozuser.dvi inside the OzTeX folder.
For information about other versions of TeX for the Macintosh, see the Penn State Macintosh TeX/LaTeX web site.
A free version of TeX for Windows is MiKTeX.
For other versions of TeX and other TeX-related software, see TeX Resources on the Web.
If your spelling is less than perfect, you may find it helpful to use a a spell-checker. Excalibur is a spell-checker that's designed to be used with LaTeX files on the Macintosh. It does a very nice job and it's free.
