Alternative Document Classes

Note: These class files provide an alternative to the usual LaTeX article, report, or book classes. There are some alternatives to letter.cls, too. These are used to change document layout in general and they usually provide some special features, as well. You should check the class file documentation first to make shure whether you can use options or commands that are part of the respective package before considering the use of one of the packages listed further below.
