comment Macro to generate ordinal words from numbers?
I want to accept this answer, but it's still not quite correct two days after the answer was posted. There was a typo or minor oversight in the original answer. When \ordinalstringnum is substituted for \ordinalnum, it will be correct, I believe. Werner, you may be busy with the real world--the delay is no problem--but I thought I'd post a reminder comment. Thanks. (If someone else with edit-acceptance power wants to verify that my edit is correct and accept it, that would solve the issue, too.)

Yes, but it's good to have alternative solutions for different cases.

Thanks. Nice idea. In my case, I want to be able to do both. Sometimes "blahblah number 2" is natural in a sentence, and sometimes "second" is.

It looks like \ordinalstringnum rather than \ordinalnum is the macro that produces the effect I wanted. I submitted an edit that makes that substitution. With that change, it's perfect. Thanks, especially for the use of \refcount; without that, I would have just gone in circles with fmtcount.

comment How to disable Vim LaTeX plugin while enabling other plugins
Excellent. Thanks Aditya. I didn't remember that I had a .vim directory. (For those who prefer to start a graphical vim using a command such as gvim, on a unix system this is useful when using Aditya's suggestion: gvim myfile.tex 2>&1 | more.)

Thanks Gonzalo. The \layout diagram makes sense now. And I just looked at the geometry documentation and tried it for the first time. You're right--the diagrams are very clear, and I now have a simpler solution for dealing with my grant application's 1-inch margins requirement.

Right, I agree @GonzaloMedina, it's not a duplicate, as my comments to your answer indicate. The standard diagrams that are referenced in the other question's answers don't explain enough.

Sorry about commenting too fast, Gonzalo. I've deleted my first comment as it's no longer appropriate. OK, I'm still a little confused. What's the relationship between \headheight and \topmargin? Does the text start \headsep + \headheight + \topmarginbelow the top of the paper?
