## Introduction

We use `memoir.cls` as the main document class for all our books and articles that we typeset. Hence, all the main formatting is done by `memoir`. The class is available in all standard TeX distributions and can be downloaded from Comprehensive TeX Archive Network (CTAN) from this link. It is well documented and therefore, readers are advised to go through the documentation before making use of this package.

This LaTeX package which is called `ithal.sty` is a subsidiary package that will work in conjunction with `memoir.cls` extending its functionality to suit typesetting requirements of Malayalam books.

`  \usepackage[<options>]{ithal}`
