The mentioned page lists the more useful information, which PDF variant is required. It is essentially PDF/A, whereas PDF/A-1a is the most preferred one. However, having doubts that pdflatex is smart enough to add document structure, you might have to rely on PDF/A-1b, or PDF/A-2b. In any case, you will have to provide sufficient Metadata. A standard way ...

Use GhostScript (gs) to embed all fonts Compile your document normally, and then process it with this command: gs -DSAFER -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -dEmbedAllFonts=true -sOutputFile=$NEWFILE.pdf -f$YOURFILE.pdf (Replace $YOURFILE.pdf with the name of the file produced by pdflatex, and$NEWFILE.pdf by the name of the file you want to obtain) ...

I will show a solution with tex4ht. I used your sample text and added some math samples from the internet. You can see the complete resulting webpage on my Github page. All code is also hosted on Github. You have four wishes, some of them can be solved using external Javascript tools, for others we must create custom JS scripts. tex4ht can be configured ...

did you have a look at http://www.howtotex.com/tag/faster-latex/ I think you already tried everything from "Part I", so you should look at "Part IV". I guess that the compile speed depends a lot on the included packages. By compiling parts of the document you also include the all your needed packages. So making them static could improve the compile speed ...

You don't mention what kind of thesis you have, pictures and so on, so I'm just going to go with what I got. I'd put the two parts in environments and \excludecomment them using the comment package. \documentclass{article} \newenvironment{partone}{}{} \newenvironment{parttwo}{}{} \usepackage{comment} %\excludecomment{partone} \excludecomment{parttwo} ...

In lack of a Thesis.cls I used book.cls and the \@makechapterhead for \chapter (not \chapter*!) and did some hacking in there. \documentclass{book} \newif\ifusedot \usedottrue % Enable 1. format \newcommand{\UseDot}{% \ifusedot .% \else % \fi } \makeatletter \def\@makechapterhead#1{% \vspace*{50\p@}% {\parindent \z@ \raggedright \normalfont ...

If you would like to avoid the draft option of the graphicx package, you could duplicate all your images with lower resolution copies, thus you retain the actual images with their respective sizes, however, due to the lower quality the resulting pdf will be smaller and compiling will probably be faster. During writing you probably do not need the high-end ...

if you think that including the large images is what's taking most time, process just the images and enough surrounding text to make sure they're doing what you want them to do. then add [draft] using one of these methods in the preamble: \documentclass[draft]{...} \usepackage[draft]{...} this will suppress loading and processing of the images, but will ...
