The Mouse's Tale in LaTeX
This example from section three of the LaTeX verse package documentation demonstrates an ambitious use of \indentpattern to create a striking visual effect. In this case it is defined to recreate the famous typesetting of the original Mouse's Tale as it appeared in print.
Background: "The Mouse's Tale" is a poem by Lewis Carroll involving a 'quadruple pun' which appears in his novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. It uses typesetting style to create the final pun (it is a mouse's tale typeset in the shape of a mouse's tail).
For more details see the poem's Wikipedia entry.

The tcolorbox Package
tcolorbox provides an environment for colored and framed text boxes with a heading
line. Optionally, such a box can be split in an upper and a lower part. The package
tcolorbox can be used for the setting of LaTeX examples where one part of the box
displays the source code and the other part shows the output. Another common use
case is the setting of theorems. The package supports saving and reuse of source code
and text parts.
