Chris,

>>I have a problem with getting a file produced out of Elsevier's
electronic

PDF
>>figs and with/without the *.sty files I used. The PDF-build processes
stops
>>without properly typesetting the manuscript.tex file. All other files are

>>After calling up Elsevier a couple of times, they suggest to include the
>>*.sty files I used in the manuscript.tex file. I have never heard of this
>>before and the typesetting just fails on my Mac here. A typical case of

>>Does someone else ever had this problem or is it possible to include
*.sty
>>files in the preamble of a *.tex file?

>What style files are you using, your own or standard ones?
Standard ones:
\documentclass[reviewcopy]{elsart}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{natbib}
\usepackage{longtable}
% \usepackage[config, labelfont={rm,bf}, textfont=rm,
font=small]{caption,subfig}
\usepackage[config, labelfont={rm,bf}]{subfig}
\usepackage[right, pagewise]{lineno}

> I didn't include any other style files or packages. I did have to upload
> the elsart3p file with my submission, which I thought was strange.

Yes, I uploaded the elsart.sty one (see above) - I found this also very
strange for a publisher who has its own style file.
