What is {\footnotesize \LaTeX}

{\footnotesize \LaTeX} is based on the idea that it is better to leave document design to document designers.  By extension, it allows authors to focus on content and writing documents.  Unlike word processing, {\footnotesize \LaTeX} is not a point-and-click application.  It  involves the use of a text file with markup code or syntax.  The text file is then run through a compiler to produce a high quality, consistently formatted document.
