    hello everyone

    i am a newbie in this whole TeX thing. Recently i donwloaded a full system of MikTeX along with a paid copy of Winedt 5.3 to use alongside MikTex. However, I am able to create LaTeX files, but whenever i find *.tex files on the net, i am not able to view them...am i doin something wrong or what?

      What do you mean you can't view them -- if you double-click, WinEdt doesn't start?  One possible problem you may find with *.tex files on the net is that if they are written on UNIX or on a Mac, your PC software may not handle the strange "end-of-line" characters properly.
