Clive Nicholas <Clive.Nicholas@newcastle.ac.uk> asks about the LaTeX style
files used by the Stata Press, of which -stata.sty- is one:

The Stata Press LaTeX documentclass and style/package files are not part of
any TeX distribution.

The Stata Press LaTeX files were originally developed for the Stata Journal.
An introduction to using these files is at

	http://www.stata-journal.com/author/

Unfortunately, this page is slightly out-of-date; but will be updated
soon.  The up-to-date introduction in plain text form is available at

	http://www.stata-journal.com/production/sjlatex/sjstart.txt

This website discusses the -sjlatex- package that contains a Stata program
that will download the LaTeX files:

	. net from http://www.stata-journal.com/production
	. net install sjlatex

If you do not want to use -sjlatex-, you can still get at the LaTeX files by
using

	. mkdir sjlatex
	. cd sjlatex
	. net from http://www.stata-journal.com/production
	. net get sjlatex

or pointing your browser to

	http://www.stata-journal.com/production/sjlatex/
