comment Reproducing the standard layout of the “book” class with “titletoc”
Section 9.2 of the titlesec manual shows how to redefine the standard section commands. This is very helpful, I can just copy-paste it and then start tweaking it. With titletoc I haven't found anything similar. And with titletoc it is even worse, as the interface is much more complicated and there are more parameters to guess.

comment Reproducing the standard layout of the “book” class with “titletoc”
@Johannes_B: Often it happens that in general I like the layout of the standard table of contents, but I would just like to modify some particular detail (e.g., some details of the spacing, fonts, etc.). How do you do that with titletoc? If there was an example of how to reproduce the standard table of contents, then I could first just copy-paste that to my document, and then tweak it a bit.

comment Symbols instead of numbers as footnote markers
@FlybyNight: Yes (feel free to edit!), but in the meantime you can read "texdoc footmisc" for documentation.

comment Text in math mode: inherit bold but not italics
Is there a painless way to make \mathsf{foo} look like \textsf{foo} if I am using \usepackage[charter]{mathdesign}\renewcommand{\sfdefault}{phv}, i.e., Charter as serif font and Helvetica as sans-serif font?

I like this alternative, even if it does not do exactly what I wanted. :)

Why not just use \text instead of \mbox; then it would also scale correctly?

comment Text in math mode: inherit bold but not italics
It seems that this version gives a missing font warning (just like my original MWE). I guess it would be better to first use \upshape and only after that \sffamily to avoid the warning, e.g., \text{\upshape\sffamily foo}?

Better example.
