comment Expanding macros within \csname
I don't see how is \emph a good thing to put inside \csname. What do you really want?

comment Would it be possibile to advance Beamer at the level of the HTML presentations?
You certainly don't need any transitions. And you can use media9 for animations.

comment Definition with roman counter value
What do you suggest -- \rommannumeral\csname c@#1\endcsname? (Damn, I can't even test things now, I'm on Windoze :( )

Your copy editors / typesetters must truly love you. </discussion>

comment Spacing between consecutive displayed equations
Well, you can enter any LaTeX code in LyX, so of course you can do this. However, you have to do it manually (and the equations are not displayed in the LyX editor, just the code). And tell me, do you ever use StackEngine to do things like this? (I hope not.)

comment Spacing between consecutive displayed equations
I don't see how this is helpful for a LyX problem with typesetting consecutive equations. This answers is wrong in two ways.

comment Similar Structured Macros
You are either missing one \; or you have three extra \; (depending on whether the large spaces are really wanted).

Well, I'm not sure if you'd succeed in annotating a corrupted PDF. But still, they exist, so I suppose it's possible that it's corrupted in such a way that a program is willing to add the annotation, but it makes the corruption as bad as in my country's government and the file can't be opened anymore.

comment Cases behaving in a very eccentric manner
@firemind You're welcome. Actually, I just realized that the , before & are spurious, too. It makes the perfect English and mathematical sense without them.

comment Cases behaving in a very eccentric manner
Welcome to TeX.SX! Please make your code compilable (if possible), or at least complete it with \documentclass{...}, the required \usepackage's, \begin{document}, and \end{document}. That may seem tedious to you, but think of the extra work it represents for TeX.SX users willing to give you a hand. Help them help you: remove that one hurdle between you and a solution to your problem. Your code is not minimal. If you tried to reduce it, you would see that you are missing & on the last two lines of cases.

comment Problem with LaTeX
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about corrupted auxiliary files.

If you haven't ever seen a corrupted PDF, then you haven't seen much :) chat.stackexchange.com/transcript/41?m=18977588#18977588

comment How do I make 3 columns on a single line in a document?
There is couple dozen answers to this questions, depending on what exactly do you need. So unless you provide more context, the answers very likely won't fit in your needs.

comment A TeX math font for Helvetica Neue?
@SeanAllred Not quite true, hardly all zillions of fonts out there have a full math support.

I would like to see that somebody in person. I'll bring my Arial Black bat in appropriate size :D

comment LaTeX vs Word; improvements of LaTeX over the years
@student I can tell you why the close vote (from me). I have actually chosen the wrong reason, but it really doesn't matter. This is so much open-ended and so much opinion-based that it doesn't make a good SE question.

comment LaTeX vs Word; improvements of LaTeX over the years
Emphasize mine: capable of, easily. I agree with the first one (however, "capable of" doesn't mean much, remember that TeX is Turing-complete; it's capable of a lot). I disagree with the latter.

comment pdf link does not work with latex/dvips/pstopdf execution
At which system you are? How did you install TL2014? Because ps2pdf should be installed by TL.

comment pdf link does not work with latex/dvips/pstopdf execution
Just a thought: have you tried ps2pdf instead of pstopdf?
