DANTE, Deutschsprachige Anwendervereinigung TeX e.V., has been founded on April 14, 1989 in Heidelberg, Germany. The principal aim of the association is to encourage advice and cooperation among German language TeX users. This includes consulting via WWW, electronic mail and usual letter mail concerning purchase, implementation and user problems of TeX, distribution of software for members and information about all what's going on in the TeX world. But this is not the only intention. The user group examines proposals of members for new TeX software, if there are some. Besides all this, DANTE e.V. cooperates with other related national and international TeX groups.
