# [Haskell-cafe] OT: the format checker for ICFP 2010 papers, help!

Thu Apr 1 12:25:44 EDT 2010

Do you perhaps have some text that run into the margins?  If I have
references of the form "Longname~\emph{et~al.}~\cite{foobar}" Latex
does not know how to split this up the text extends into the margins.
A similar problem might occur for verbatim sections.  I submitted a
paper based on the standard stylesheet earlier today and did not
encounter any problems.

If that is not the issue try to contact Stephanie as Wouter suggested.
