Your google search to find the "sffms" style package seems like it could
be the perfect answer to my quandary. I'm trying now to get my head
around acquiring it. I don't have a great track record with installing
things, and try to use package management systems when I can.

Sffms is located on CTAN (which I'm learning about as I write
this!). I'm running Ubuntu, and believe I have TexLive installed, but
have never tried its package management system.

What's a good way to proceed here?

Thank you!
