\title{The \texttt{plimsoll} package $\plimsollsans$}

\begin{document}
\maketitle
\section{Introduction}
\label{sec:introduction}
This package provides support for the use of the Plimsoll symbol
``$\plimsoll$'' in \LaTeX.
\section{Loading the package}
\label{sec:loading-package}
\begin{lstlisting}[language={[latex]tex}]
\usepackage{plimsoll}
\end{lstlisting}
In math mode the Plimsoll symbol is available with the command
\lstinline{\plimsoll} command.
\subsection{Options}
\label{sec:options}
\begin{description}
\item[sans] Provides the use of a sans serif version of the Plimsoll
symbol: $\plimsollsans$.
This version of the symbol is available with
\lstinline|\plimsollsans| as well.
\item[circ] Make use of \lstinline{\circ} for denoting the standard
state instead of the Plimsoll symbol. See
section~\ref{sec:standard-mark}.
\end{description}
\section{The standard mark}
\label{sec:standard-mark}
In chemistry the Plimsoll symbol is sometimes used for denoting values
of funtions of state in the standard state of a chemical agent. This
could be the standard Gibbs energy $G\stst$.
Denoting the standard state is avaiable in math mode with
\lstinline{\stst}. This is compatible with the command name suggested
in the \emph{The Comprehensive \LaTeX\ Symbol List}. An example of
using the symbol is
\begin{lstlisting}[language={[latex]tex}]
\Delta G\stst = \Delta H\stst - T \cdot \Delta S\stst
\end{lstlisting}
yielding
\begin{equation}
\label{eq:1}
\Delta G \stst = \Delta H\stst - T \cdot \Delta S\stst
\end{equation}
The package option \lstinline{circ} redefines the \lstinline{\stst} to
use the \lstinline{\circ} command instead of the \lstinline{\plimsoll}
command. This is officially recommended by IUPAC but is not used
conequently. It appears to be a matter of taste. This package provides
easy interchange between the two different choices.
