I sent the following to the TeX Users Group support list and received
deafening silence in reply.  That seems to be the pattern on that list :-(

My questions are 1. does anyone know of a TeX oriented community where I
can bend a guru's ear and 2. does anyone know the answer to any of my
questions below?

Is there any sort of repository of "good" classes?  I'd like to refactor
my resume into LaTeX, but all the classes I have found have been "one
offs."  It is sort of a catch-22 that I'm not a typesetter, so I am in a
poor position to judge the classes that are out there, but if I knew
what was really good I'd just make my own :-(

I have a few other questions if anyone wants to take a crack at 'em.

How can I make an inset box?  I'm working on a book that will include
some side note type items that are too big for marginal notes, and are
really too important as well.  It is the kind of thing you see in
Mathematics texts, where a law or theorem is set below an explanatory
paragraph in a bordered or shaded box.  Tables don't work.  I guess I
could use a separate PS file, but that isn't really what I am looking

I would also like to be able to include (in the C preprocessor sense)
some code examples directly out of the actual data files.  IOW I am
going to have some example files available in soft copy on FTP and
printed within the book.  To prevent version skew I'd like the actual
live file on FTP to be "included" when the LaTeX file is built into a
DVI. (Not over FTP, off local (probably actually NFS) disk.)

Thanks for any and all help!
