Birthday card About a month ago it was my boyfriend's 22nd birthday. I bought him the absolutely cutest stuffed bear evur and made a childish birthday card with gimp/inkscape. I know it's not a masterpiece, but he liked it anyway, so please don't be mean. I decided to replicate it with lualatex for this challenge. No real reason for lualatex over xelatex, ...

[I hope my contribution fits the format.] One of the things I like most about LaTeX is the ability to typeset really pleasing bibliographies without much effort. The most customisable solution I encountered so far is the biblatex package and I use it in all my documents where I have to cite any references. I hope you like my styling of the list of ...

$B^{\mathit{high}}$ or $B^{\mathrm{high}}$ I'd probably use the latter. As you noted it's possible to omit the {} around \mathit{high} but it's not a good practice it would fail with most commands, it just works with \mathit because of the slightly bizarre way that ^ works. the \text... commands will also use script size fonts if amsmath is loaded ...

If I understand your wish, you need to use the following macros: \newcount\tmpnum \def\sedef#1{\expandafter\edef\csname#1\endcsname} \def\expandcsname#1{\expandafter\ifx\csname#1\endcsname\relax \else \csname#1\endcsname\fi} \def\brk#1#2#3{\bgroup\def\brkLines{#2}\ifx+#1\tmpnum=0 \brkA#3{}% \else\tmpnum=1 ...

The following solution is from Peter Wilson, who couldn't post this himself. A pdf of Peter's contribution may be found here.

You can have such a functionality easilly with the biblatex package, by redefining the mkbibnamelast command. See also the p.95 of the biblatex ( Version 2.8a 25/11/2013) documentation. (As egreg points it, the bibliography is somehow faulty, I edit it) \begin{filecontents*}{biblio.bib} @ARTICLE{nothing, author = {Noone and others}, ...

Here's an application of expl3: for splitting I cycle the requested number of times through the input string, picking up the items corresponding to the cycle and forming a sequence; for rebuilding it's just the reverse: I cycle over the sequence elements picking up the first element, the second one and so on from each item. \documentclass{article} ...

This answer requires lualatex and imagemagick or a similar program. You must convert your color pictures to .ppm and the greyscale ones to .pgm, which are very easy to work with. You can use these commands to keep the aspect ratio: convert -compress none -resize ___OutputWidth___ ___InputFile___ ___output___.ppm convert -compress none -resize ...

There are also issues like the following: In Czech typography, one-letter prepositions and conjuctions (v, s, z, k, o, u, a, i) should not be at the end of a line. Tildes are added automatically by the encxvlna package by Zdeněk Wagner and Petr Olšák. It needs the encTeX extension. Also in Czech typography, for a word containing hyphen it is ideal to ...
