Updated LaTeX for Philosophers

I’ve updated the LaTeX for Philosophers page to include a few concrete typesetting solutions, including how to typeset the non-monotonic squiggle (|~), and how to define new commands that take argument variables. There is also a proposal for rotating \vDash instead of \models for representing probabilistic independence.

The idea behind this new section is to share some LaTeX tips, with a focus on those who are either new to LaTeX or who may be running a front-end program, like Scientific Workplace, but who might need to hand-code some symbols that aren’t in the standard packages. I would be happy to list or link your favorite trick or tip.

The page still has instructions and links for using philosophy.sty to typeset double-spaced review manuscripts.
