I still owe the answer I (more or less) promised in order to show how this issue could be addressed by means of patches to the font metric data. I have put it off until now because the situation we want to cope with is fairly complex and intricate, and deserves a careful explanation. General Discussion The fact that the input --- is translated into an ...

With the new luaotfload syntax for the definition of extra font features (from v2.7 on, I guess). Basically, we condone ligaturing the " to ”, but then have a font feature which substitutes ” back to ". It might also be possible to hook into the ligaturing callback to prevent this particular ligature. Disclaimer: I have no idea what I'm doing. \...

You should better use \psqq instead of an hard coded ff and customize it to your needs. But at least you should use \adddot instead of a period: \documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{article} \usepackage[english]{babel} \usepackage[authordate,backend=biber]{biblatex-chicago} \addbibresource{test.bib} \DefineBibliographyStrings{english}{% sequens = {f\adddot}, ...

It's actually simpler: the period in “ff.” should not be sentence ending, so the rules of LaTeX say it should be followed by \@. \begin{filecontents*}{\jobname.bib} @book{Sievers1893, author = "Eduard Sievers", title = "Altgermanische Metrik", date = "1893", publisher = "Max Niemeyer", address = "Halle", } @book{Kloekhorst2008, author = "Alwin Kloekhorst", ...

Related to something I wrote recently, I would use ,\  in math mode, and just “text mode” when text is involved. I put “” because by text mode I don't mean \text. \newcommand*\mathwords{\textnormal} $\{ x \in A : \mathwords{first condition, second condition, third condition} \}$ $\{ x \in A : x > 0 ,\ x^2 \in B ,\ x^3 \notin C \}$ Something should be ...

Never say never, but I can't think of an instance where you should ever have mathematical operators outside of math mode, including =, when you're writing an equation, or otherwise typesetting maths. This seems to be a common mistake that people make. Put the entire formula, equation, expression, mathematical object in math mode. $k = 1, 2, \dots, 25$ \$...

You can get the curly left quotes with literate, but imho you have to disable the string delimiter to avoid to get the spaces shown. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{listings} \lstset{ language=Java, tabsize=2, numbers=left, basicstyle=\footnotesize, literate={}{\textquotedblleft}1, deletestring=[b]", , } \begin{document} ...

The input you show is incorrect (although it normally works by accident, it should be hello world'' not `hello world" with two ' not a " Without a full example, hard to say exactly why you are getting a straight quote in the output
