```hello, paul,

What does the text in {\tt } look like? Is it fixed width? The

yes, {\tt } is a fixed-width font, typically used
for things like typing instructions or url's or
file names.

BTW, the reason I'm asking the list is because I'm blind and the end

So I can't get the information via my screen reader.

can you tell us, please, what kinds of documentation
