comment How to exclude ligatures from hyphenation, if their constituent characters have non-zero lccode?
ah OK I see, you could use the pre-hyphenation callback to insert something invisible before the double quote, but that seems a bit heavy handed, ...

comment How to exclude ligatures from hyphenation, if their constituent characters have non-zero lccode?
the ligature isn't that relevant really is it? you see essentially the same with `xxaaxx' where no ligatures are involved. but you also need to say what other constraints you have as most methods would be equivalent to removing the lccode line, which is presumably there only so that ' is considered a letter for hyphenation.

comment How to solve error in latex beamer compilation
most likely it is an ascii null (byte 0) which you can not see. If you can not delete the line with your editor, start with a new file and copy the text (from the next line to the end) into the new file and then just re-type the initial part then just use the new file and discard the invalid one..

comment Is there a LaTeX to HTML tool that supports the algorithm2e package?
it would probably be useful if you provided a small test file then results of various possibilities are more likely to be tested.

comment How to make fbox around minipage fit the whole minipage inside it?
@Nasser no \noindent inside the \fbox has no effect it does not make it worse or better (and obviously it isn't affected by \paperwidth or \linewidth). tweaking latex isn't hard if you just follow some basic principles.

@jfbu yes I spotted that as well but thought best to answer the general question in the title rather than the specifics about the particular content of this box.

comment Recurring decimal with letter (alignning at top)
what alignment do you want here? the code posted produces essentially the output you show, or do you mean that you want all the dots at the same height?

comment Typesetting tick marks on an axis so that the space occupied by the minus sign is ignored
@Adelyn \llap is from plain tex and the latex format it's just \hbox to 0pt{\hss#1} so the same as \makebox[l][0pt]

comment Writing Google logo in latex
always for company logos best just to use the image rather than try to fake it with similar fonts, eg the logo today at least is google.co.uk/images/branding/googlelogo/2x/…

comment Geometry: strange behaviour after \restoregeometry in afterpage environment (and longtable)
changing the output routine mid-document is one of the more delicate operations possible in tex, to use afterpage, longtable, and restoregeometry and have all three attempt to change the output routine at the same point seems ... wildly optimistic. I wouldn't attempt that and I wrote half that code:-)

comment Line spacing commands have no effect beyond the first input
latex never does things "for no reason" it just follows the instructions in the file. presumably you have some wrong instructions but if you do npt show your code, how can you expect anyone to help? Start from a copy of your document at remove everything that you can remove while still showing the problem. When you can make the docuemnt no smaller, post the result.

No $\scriptsize{ is an error you can not have size change commands inside math mode.

comment How to reduce the space enclosed in parentheses?
i would never use \displaystyle in the middle of an expression. If you must use it then it should almost always be at the start.

comment Problem with Bad/Missing DVI file
missing dvi file is not a tex error it is presumably an error from your unspecified editor saying that the expected dvi file did not get produced. So all we know is that your document has an error. What does the tex log say?
