(Sorry, this is complicated -- because I'm confused!)

Installing Mathematica 4.0 (Windows 98 version) installs the
DumpSave-format package


and the LaTeX 2.09 style file

(where "Mathematica4.0" is my name for the top Mathematica directory).

A .tex file generated from a whole notebook includes the comment:

%%Implementation-specific instructions for installing TeX-related files
%% can be found at this URL.

That URL, in turn, has a link to a page specifically for 4.0 that
includes the link:

The file includes among others the following files, all
dated 5/20/99:,


along with a README.txt file telling where to install these.


1. Is the functionality of these four .m files subsumed by

2. If so, is the content of these four .m files more recent than (whose date is 4/21/99) more recent than that of

3. What is the relationship of notebook.sty in that .zip file with
notebook.sty that is installed as part of installing Mathematica 4.0? 
(Note that the version numbers and dates of these two files are
inconsistent--the one installed says "v.30  December 20, 1998" whereas
the one from the .zip file says "notebook.sty,v 1.5 1999/05/05"!)

4. How come installing Mathematica 4.0 installs notebook.sty (which
seems to be exclusively for LaTeX 2.09 or else Plain TeX) yet does not
install notebook2e.sty (which is for the now-standard version of LaTeX,
namely, LaTeX2e)?
