Found some nice LaTeX hints. Not earth-shaking news, but I wanted to stash the URL somewhere, and maybe someone else out there is desperate for ways of putting boxes around things.

TeX question, though.

Suppose I want to define macros \foo and \bar such that
\foo mumble \bar
has the same effect as
\fbox{mumble} ?
I thought \def\foo{\fbox\begingroup} \def\bar{\endgroup} was supposed to work, but it doesn't seem to. Straightforward solutions of the form \def\foo#1\bar{\fbox{#1}} are also disqualified for mysterious reasons due to the context this problem appears in for me.
