% ACM_PROC_ARTICLE-SP.CLS - VERSION 3.2SP
% COMPATIBLE WITH THE "SIG-ALTERNATE" V2.4
% Gerald Murray - April 22nd. 2009
%
% ---- Start of 'updates'  ----
%
% April 22nd. 2009 - Fixed 'Natbib' incompatibility problem - Gerry
% April 22nd. 2009 - Fixed 'Babel' incompatibility problem - Gerry
% April 22nd. 2009 - Inserted various bug-fixes and improvements - Gerry
%
% To produce Type 1 fonts in the document plus allow for 'normal LaTeX accenting' in the critical areas;
% title, author block, section-heads, etc. etc. 
% i.e. the whole purpose of this version update is to NOT resort to 'inelegant accent patches'.
% After much research, three extra .sty packages were added to the the tail (ae, aecompl, aeguill) to solve,
% in particular, the accenting problem(s). We _could_ ask authors (via instructions/sample file) to 'include' these in
% the source .tex file - in the preamble - but if everything is already provided ('behind the scenes' - embedded IN the .cls)
% then this is less work for authors and also makes everything appear 'vanilla'.
% NOTE: all 'patchwork accenting" has been commented out (here) and is no longer 'used' in the sample .tex file (either).
% Gerry June 2007
%
% Rule widths changed to .5, author count (>6) fixed, roll-back for Type 3 problem. Gerry March 20th. 2007
% Changes made to 'modernize' the fontnames but esp. for MikTeX users V2.4/2.5 - Nov. 30th. 2006
% Updated the \email definition to allow for its use inside of 'shared affiliations' - Nov. 30th. 2006
% Fixed the 'section number depth value' - Nov. 30th. 2006
%
% Footnotes inside table cells using \minipage (Oct. 2002)
% Georgia fixed bug in sub-sub-section numbering in paragraphs (July 29th. 2002)
% JS/GM fix to vertical spacing before Proofs (July 30th. 2002)
%
% Allowance made to switch default fonts between those systems using
% normal/modern font names and those using 'Type 1' or 'Truetype' fonts.
% See LINE NUMBER 269 for details.
% Also provided for enumerated/annotated Corollaries 'surrounded' by
% enumerated Theorems (line 844).
% Gerry November 11th. 1999
%
% This 'sp' version does NOT produce the permission block.
%
% Major change in January 2000 was to include a "blank line" in between
% new paragraphs. This involved major changes to the, then, acmproc-sp.cls  1.0SP
% file, precipitating a 'new' name: "acm_proc_article-sp.cls" V2.01SP.

% ACM_PROC_ARTICLE-SP  DOCUMENT STYLE
% G.K.M. Tobin August-October 1999
%    adapted from ARTICLE document style by Ken Traub, Olin Shivers
%    also using elements of esub2acm.cls
% LATEST REVISION V3.2SP - APRIL 2009
% ARTICLE DOCUMENT STYLE -- Released 16 March 1988
%    for LaTeX version 2.09
% Copyright (C) 1988 by Leslie Lamport
%
%
%%% ACM_PROC_ARTICLE-SP is a document style for producing two-column camera-ready pages for
%%% ACM conferences, according to ACM specifications.  The main features of
%%% this style are:
%%%
%%% 1)  Two columns.
%%% 2)  Side and top margins of 4.5pc, bottom margin of 6pc, column gutter of
%%%     2pc, hence columns are 20pc wide and 55.5pc tall.  (6pc =3D 1in, approx)
%%% 3)  First page has title information, and an extra 6pc of space at the
%%%     bottom of the first column for the ACM copyright notice.
%%% 4)  Text is 9pt on 10pt baselines; titles (except main) are 9pt bold.
%%%
%%%
%%% There are a few restrictions you must observe:
%%%
%%% 1)  You cannot change the font size; ACM wants you to use 9pt.
%%% 3)  You must start your paper with the \maketitle command.  Prior to the
%%%     \maketitle you must have \title and \author commands.  If you have a
%%%     \date command it will be ignored; no date appears on the paper, since
%%%     the proceedings will have a date on the front cover.
%%% 4)  Marginal paragraphs, tables of contents, lists of figures and tables,
%%%     and page headings are all forbidden.
%%% 5)  The `figure' environment will produce a figure one column wide; if you
%%%     want one that is two columns wide, use `figure*'.
%%%
%
%%% Copyright Space:
%%% This style automatically leaves 1" blank space at the bottom of page 1/
%%% column 1.  This space can optionally be filled with some text using the
%%% \toappear{...} command.  If used, this command must be BEFORE the \maketitle
%%% command.  If this command is defined AND [preprint] is on, then the
%%% space is filled with the {...} text (at the bottom); otherwise, it is
%%% blank.  If you use \toappearbox{...} instead of \toappear{...} then a
%%% box will be drawn around the text (if [preprint] is on).
%%%
%%% A typical usage looks like this:
%%%     \toappear{To appear in the Ninth AES Conference on Medievil Lithuanian
%%%               Embalming Technique, June 1991, Alfaretta, Georgia.}
%%% This will be included in the preprint, and left out of the conference
%%% version.
%%%
%%% WARNING:
%%% Some dvi-ps converters heuristically allow chars to drift from their
%%% true positions a few pixels. This may be noticeable with the 9pt sans-serif
%%% bold font used for section headers.
%%% You may turn this hackery off via the -e option:
%%%     dvips -e 0 foo.dvi >foo.ps

% Rationale for changes made in next four definitions:
% "Before skip" is made elastic to provide some give in setting columns (vs.
% parskip, which is non-elastic to keep section headers "anchored" to their
% subsequent text.
%
% "After skip" is minimized -- BUT setting it to 0pt resulted in run-in heads, despite
% the documentation asserted only after-skip < 0pt would have result.
%
% Baselineskip added to style to ensure multi-line section titles, and section heads

% The following section (i.e. 3 .sty inclusions) was added in May 2007 so as to fix the problems that many
% authors were having with accents. Sometimes accents would occur, but the letter-character would be of a different
% font. Conversely the letter-character font would be correct but, e.g. a 'bar' would appear superimposed on the
% character instead of, say, an unlaut/diaresis. Sometimes the letter-character would NOT appear at all.
% Using [T1]{fontenc} outright was not an option as this caused 99% of the authors to 'produce' a Type-3 (bitmapped)
% PDF file - useless for production. 
%
% For proper (font) accenting we NEED these packages to be part of the .cls file i.e. 'ae', 'aecompl' and 'aeguil'

%% This is file `aeguill.sty' 
% This file gives french guillemets (and not guillemots!)
% built with the Polish CMR fonts (default), WNCYR fonts, the LASY fonts 
% or with the EC fonts. 
% This is useful in conjunction with the ae package
% (this package loads the ae package in case it has not been loaded)
%  and with or without the french(le) package.
%
% In order to get the guillemets, it is necessary to either type
% \guillemotleft and \guillemotright, or to use an 8 bit encoding
% (such as ISO-Latin1) which selects these two commands, 
% or, if you use the french package (but not the frenchle package), 
% to type << or >>.
%
% By default, you get the Polish CMR guillemets; if this package is loaded
% with the `cm' option, you get the LASY guillemets; with `ec,' you
% get the EC guillemets, and with `cyr,' you get the cyrillic guillemets.
%
% In verbatim mode, you always get the EC/TT guillemets.
%
% The default option is interesting in conjunction with PDF,
% because there is a Type 1 version of the Polish CMR fonts
% and these guillemets are very close in shape to the EC guillemets.
% There are no free Type 1 versions of the EC fonts.
%
% Support for Polish CMR guillemets was kindly provided by 
% Rolf Niepraschk <niepraschk@ptb.de> in version 0.99 (2000/05/22).
% Bernd Raichle provided extensive simplifications to the code
% for version 1.00.
%
% This package is released under the LPPL.
%
% Changes:
%   Date        version
%   2001/04/12  1.01    the frenchle and french package are now distinguished.
