Hypertext Help with LaTeX
Other on-line LaTeX information

Prime Sources

TeX Users Group Home Page
The Comprehensive Tex Archive Network (CTAN)
Virtually all TeX, LaTeX, and related software and documentation can be obtained from CTAN, which has multiple ftp mirror sites.

Packages for Publications

The American Institute of Physics accepts manuscripts for several of its journals in REVTeX.
Similarly, the American Astronomical Society accepts manuscripts for several of its journals in AASTeX. The AASTeX FAQ might be helpful. Astronomers will also find TeX and LaTeX Macros for astronomers from STScI to be useful; Particularly good is Chris Biemesderfer's LaTeX Command Summary.
The American Mathematical Society has their own macro package, AMSTeX.
