    I need advice on how to typeset algorithms in computer science papers 
    (not a specific journal yet).

she then goes on to describe the difference between setting
math and setting algorithms (or pseudo-code).

there are several very competent packages on ctan for doing
this.  (algorithms and algorithm2e are two that I know of.)
ordinarily, I would suggest that a search on ctan at
would yield some good prospects, but when I just checked,
that isn't working as expected.  I have notified the ctan team,
and hope for a prompt resolution.

in the meantime, do look at those two; both are included in
tex live, so "texdoc xxx" should bring up the user documentation
on your screen.  and good luck in finding an appropriate package.
