Actually the underlying system is TeX and the definitive, very well  
written but dense book is Knuth's ``The TeXbook.'' All of the  
primitive rules, etc., of TeX are contained there. I read and re-read  
that book several times back in the `old days'' and even thought I  
understood it pretty well but that was many years ago so I'm almost  
back to ground zero now. Sigh...

Good Luck,
