### question

Dear all,
I have the following question:
I have a long title for my thesis which takes about 4 lines. I used \huge
and \bf (or \textbf). But the output is not good looking.
I have used the following script:
\being{center}
\textbf{\Huge{In-Situ detection and assessment of low velocity
impact-induced damage in composite materials using developed fibre
optics sensor}}
\end{center}
The distance between the first and the second line is lesser than the
distance*creates between second and third or third and fouth line...

Can anyone suggest anything.

Regards
suresh

this is because you close the enclosing group before the paragraph
ends.  the center environment provides the paragraph end.

the problem probably arises because of your misunderstanding of how
\Huge works -- it doesn't take an argument, it's a modal command.

try

\begin{center}
\Huge
\textbf{In-Situ detection and assessment of low velocity
impact-induced damage in composite materials using developed fibre
optics sensor}
\end{center}

\being{center}
\Huge
% perhaps \raggedright too
\textbf{In-Situ detection and assessment of low velocity
impact-induced damage in composite materials using developed fibre
optics sensor}
\end{center}

Thanks very much to all those who answered my bibliography non-question!

and the uses of \makeatletter and \makeatother.

Now, here's what I hope will be the last question I have for a little while.

============================================================================

I'm trying to have a look around to see what sort of LaTeX/TeX compatible
spelling checkers there are. I'm looking for something which has a LARGE
dictionary, and can handle multi-language situations.
I particular, I'm looking for something that will handle German and
English either interchangeably, or at the same time.

I have heard of amSPELL for the PC, and ispell for unix systems.
Unfortunately, I'm on a VAX VMS platform right now.
I am using a piece of software called `SPELL''.
It has a very nice, large dictionary, and a very nice correction
utility. Unfortunately, it isn't supported by the original author
anymore, it doesn't have any German in it, doesn't have a very flexible
system by which modifications can be made, and it doesn't handle things
like \"{u} very well.

So, right now, I'm looking for something like ispell that will run on
VAX VMS. I'd really like to use this program, since it seems to
enjoy a lot of development work, but I've never seen a VMS version...
