and the first couple lines from the .cls file that I'm using:

%               and \homepage commands.
%% This file contains a class definition, infposter, for the LaTeX2e
%% system which defines the layout of posters in the style of
%% University of Edinburgh.
%% For information on this class, please refer to "texdoc infposter"
%% The following LaTeX packages are required by this class:
%%    pstricks - to embed the background EU crests and border.
%%    graphics - to display all EPS figures
%%    multicol - to produce the 3 column text.
%%    sectsty  - to redefine the font and colour of the headers
%%    url      - to typeset urls properly

                      % This fixes the problem with the column

                      % section on the right-hand side of the separator.
% Epsfig retained for compatibility, but all graphics are included  
% graphicx

%%SJE: no need for EU shield.
%%\usepackage{eushield} \shieldtype{4}
% Added this in case urls are to be displayed
% A better way to redefine section headers!

%% Set up the default colours for the poster.
%% These can be modified directly by the user


%% provide a number of lengths to let the user
%% customise the spacing of the poster




%% keep a track of whether \makeposter has been called. If it has
%% then we need to do an \end{multicols}

\def\poster at true{1}
\def\poster at false{0}
\let\poster at displayed\poster at false

% End whatever environments we're in (the exact ones depend on the  
   \if\poster at displayed\poster at true \end{posterindent}
     \if at postercolumns

%% setup the multicols environment


%% Setup some really big fonts. This is a pain to do, so I'm just
%% going to use the style files from the FoilTeX system which already
%% do this.

\DeclareRobustCommand\em{\@nomath\em \ifdim \fontdimen\@ne\font >\z@

% [DCS] Foiltex redefines \@list.  Change it back to the setting used by

% sizes for the main title and sub title.
