comment What is best Latex template could be used for presentation?
I suggest you use the beamer class. I would just use the default styles, or if you want to some simple them such as Bodilla or Antibes. Keep it simple. What counts is the quality of the content, not your dazzling-your-audience skills. See the link on my LaTeX and Firends pages for an introduction to beamer.

comment Union of Paths in MetaPost
Thanks. This is "similar" to how I created the outlines, except that I didn't use penpos. My question is about getting the outlines:-) Also note that there's an ugly dip in the shoulder of your h, which I've managed to avoid. With a "naive" penpos solution you can't avoid impediments like this.

comment How can I color parentheses depending on the nesting level (like emacs' rainbow-delimiters)?
Maybe you can do this with ligatures formation rules. The fontspec package seems to provide a feature that lets you define your own ligature formation rules.

comment which types of effect can I put in a presentation using Latex?
@Nemo Thanks. Have you read the beamer manual. It contains a section about adding style to your presentations. Also it explains how to add incremental transitions and alerts (highlighting).

comment which types of effect can I put in a presentation using Latex?
If this is your first presentation, please do yourself a favour and focus on the content because all the time you spend on playing with the effects will result in a worse presentation. If this is not your first presentation, please do your audience a favour and keep it simple and forget about transition effects.

comment Visualisation of planes within hypercubes in LaTex?
@Johannes_B The OP is the only one who knows about their intentions. Speculating about them and using this to invalidate their questions does not seem fair to me.

@Johannes_B I've been informed that answering one's own questions is deemed acceptable in this group.

comment Hiding empty table column when empty
It looks easier to me to do this kind of stuff on the generator (PHP) side. Doing this on the LaTeX side seems wrong because it assumes LaTeX understands the meaning of the columns. For example, you use a divider (|) in the required argument of longtable. It's not clear whether it should be kept when a column becomes empty or not.

Works for me. BTW, you should tie the citations to the previous text: referenc~\cite{...}.
