3 Example of Use

This example is only intended to give you a quick overview of how to use dalthesis. The example provided shows the 12pt type-size being used. This is required for submission copy, but 10pt or 11pt may be used to get smaller draft print. Note, however, that the front material may not look good in smaller print. If no value is given, 12pt is assumed.
