A supplement is a publication that has a role secondary to that of another preceding or concurrent publication. A follow-on publication complements its predecessor, either by bringing it up-to-date, or by otherwise enhancing the predecessor's coverage of a particular topic or subject matter, as in the Tosefta. Supplements are particularly popular and useful in gaming hobbies. A newspaper supplement, often a weekly section of its parent, usually has a tabloid or Sunday magazine format and covers wide-ranging and less time-critical subjects, as in The American Weekly, the 2004 version of Life, and Parade; newspaper supplements became common in France and Germany in the mid to late 19th century—they were called feuilleton in French. In Chinese, they are called fukan. Advertising supplements periodically accompany corresponding newspapers and are prepared by the paper's advertising staff instead of its editorial staff. It is common for them to covering topics such as real estate and automobiles, on behalf of the paper's frequent advertisers. Some supplements are spin-offs from a newspaper sold separately and typically covering a specific topic, such as the Times Literary Supplement and the Times Educational Supplement
