Assuming that you do not need the star versions of the \section et al: \documentclass[12pt]{report} \usepackage{csuf-thesis} \usepackage{hyperref} \hypersetup{colorlinks=false} \nocopyright \setcounter{secnumdepth}{0} \makeatletter \def\section#1{\@startsection{section}{1}{\z@} {-7ex}{2ex \@plus 0.01ex} {\centering\ssp}{\underline{#1}}} ...

Using some of biblatex's on-board technologies we can make the code a bit shorter. (And I'm really not a fan of constructs such as \citeauthor{#2}, \citetitle{#2}, \citeyear{#2}, they go horribly wrong when several works are cited and they don't deal with pre- and postnotes that well. Granted, that might not be a problem here, but still ...) Note first that ...

OK. I came up with something which seems to work - that is, it survives absolutely minimal testing, but will no doubt break as soon as I try to use it in a real document. I am sure, however, that this cannot possibly be the simplest solution. There must be a more straightforward way of extracting the URL for use as a hyperlink target, mustn't there? I ...

Try to use as less package dependent macros as possible, and organize your general purpose ones in a small file. You may have a look at Paul Isambert's TeXapi and YaX packages, which may provide you with an interface to write format independent macros; they are used by his lecturer and navigator packages, which can run on Plain, LaTeX and ConTeXt.

So I got into the whole idea of learning plain TeX OK, welcome:) 1. What is good practice for package writing? Typically, plain TeX users don't use packages from third side. They started with fixed point which is plain.tex file and do own macros. But there is a problem about "reinventing wheel". For example they must do own macros for table of contents, ...

Technically using plain tex is not an option, plain is the format produced by inputting the file plain.tex into initex and that file is not used in LaTeX at all. It is however true that many of the commands that are defined in plain TeX have commands of the same name defined in LaTeX, and in some of those cases, the definitions are the same. The commands ...
