comment Removing page number from title frame without changing the theme
This was perfect for me. I just added noframenumbering in frame options, rather than doing the hack to decrement it.

comment Is there any way other than \pmb to produce bold greek letters when mathptmx is used?
Incompatibility with amsmath sounds like a pretty awful setback.

comment Best way of breaking a line?
I agree with Juri Robl on this. If you really insist on doing this, I believe inserting \hfill before the manual linebreak should fix it.

comment Best way of breaking a line?
I don't get a warning when I do this. What type of document is it? Are you using pdflatex?

comment Chapter reading order diagram
Do publishers often require the making of all diagrams in TeX? Sounds like a PITA, why wouldn't they allow EPS/PDF diagrams imported?

I'd say my question is a duplicate of this one :) I did search but did not find it.

How do you deal with bad boxes resulting from the non-hyphenation of those words?

comment LaTeX tables: How do I make bold horizontal lines (typically \hline)?
After having really experimented with booktabs, I see that you both were right ;) It really does not imply much work to start using them!

comment How do I make a list start at the same level than the text surrounding it (Without extra left space)?
Thanks, why doesn't the setlength command work? I noticed that it works for some parameters like itemsep.

comment Why is LaTeX3 taking so long to come out?
Hey, as I was reading that page, I noticed you point people looking for information to the usenet news group comp.text.tex. You should definitely add a link to this site, I think it's much more user friendly than a news group :P Perhaps you could also add a link to the help page? :D

The link goes to test.latex-project.org/latex3.html, which is an invalid page, normal?

comment What packages do people load by default in LaTeX?
I have always used Inkscape for the production of my vector images, diagrams and whatsoever. Does tikz produce comparable diagrams? How much effort is involved?

comment “Adventure UML” in TeX
Do you realize most of those diagrams are awfully ugly and that you could do something much better looking by using specifically designed tools for this effect? e.g. gaphor, violetUML, dia, visio, inkscape...

comment Latexdiff error (caused by multi paragraph \sout): Paragraph ended before \UL@on was complete
No, but that's part of the problem. Latex diff is inserting this line automatically, I can't be editing all my files manually after latexdiff has parsed them, I'd rather look for another solution than be forced to do it manually.

comment How best to include programming source code in LaTeX documents?
After rebooting I got it working, but I don't seem to be able to use Unicode characters, is that normal?
