Hey—It Works!

Jeremy Gibbons wrote a regular column, Hey—It Works!, originally for TeX and TUG News, the quarterly newsletter of the TeX Users Group, and later for TUGboat. The column was devoted to elegant and useful tips and tricks for TeX, LaTeX and friends. Jeremy has very kindly allowed the TUG web site to become the home of this repository.
Thank you, Jeremy, for your time and effort!
