LaTeX problem: Integrating ArabTeX with LLNCS

LaTeX, the typesetting system enables you to produce high-quality documents with less effort. Read more in my other post about LaTeX. On submitting to a conference, I had to work with their class files so I used \documentclass{llncs}. They use LaTeX Lecture Notes in Computer Science (llncs) from Springer.

In the same document, I use ArabTeX package to render Arabic characters. When I applied both packages I found that section numbers disappered! So instead of "1. Introduction" and "1.2 Title" I got "Introduction" and "Title". After spending an hour or two I found that ArabTeX redefines the section formatting command \section using \renewcommand in asect.sty. So I disabled the inclusion of such file in apatch.sty by commenting the following:

%\UsePackage {asect} % load LaTeX extensions for Arabic sections.

For a normal LaTeX installation, all files exist in /usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/arabtex/
I don't know who will ever make use of this piece of information, just spreading the word. Let Google help me in that!

Just create an empty file named asect.sty in the folder where your paper lives, and you are done.

It is, nonetheless, thecasinosource.com a matter on which both the civil and the canon legislation have much to say. In the United States the topic lies outdoors the province of the Federal Government, however lots of the States make playing a penal offence when the bet is upon an election, a horse-race, or a game of likelihood. Betting contracts and securities given upon a bet are sometimes made void. Aside from the entertainment of casinos, some folks do get swept into an addiction that far surpasses the entertainment value of the video games. Only a small proportion of gamblers attain this point, however sadly, it’s estimated that their losses make up a quarter of the profits for the casinos. This is all the extra cause to understand the home benefit and how it it} works against a participant who has misplaced a big sum and is spending lots of time in the casino trying to win it back.
