comment Documentation on beamer element category to theme element mappings?
Thanks for posting this answer. I have to say, though, that I think the documentation that you included illustrates why I asked the question (note phrases like "is widely used", "most", "not necessarily", etc.). The fact that there are complex interdependencies between such categories doesn't make it easier to understand, either. The correct answer to my final question appears to be: "No." (I have hacked together some themes that I use regularly, but the code is not pretty, and I wouldn't claim that I understand it. Sigh.)

comment Convert endnote superscripts to parenthetical numbers
Yes, this can be considered a duplicate, in the sense that the answer to that question can easily be used to answer mine. That was what I intended to convey with my earlier comment, @AlanMunn. I'm currently using that solution, so the question is answered, even though it wasn't obvious to me at first that that other question provided the answer to mine.

comment Convert endnote superscripts to parenthetical numbers
@cfr, yes, and they're going to have put up with other departures from specifications in my submission, but I thought I'd at least make this change if it was easy. And it is!

comment Convert endnote superscripts to parenthetical numbers
Thanks @AlanMunn. I had glanced at that answer, but viewed it as asking how to change the formatting only in the endnote. I didn't notice that both number formats were defined.

comment pgfpages won't change page size in beamer
You saved me a lot of additional last minute work. What a relief. Sometimes accepting an answer isn't enough.

OK! Just installed TeXLive 2014, dealt with a couple of little glitches, and pgfpages works: letterpaper now generates an 8.5/11 ratio. Thanks.

comment pgfpages won't change page size in beamer
Yes, the second image is what I want. The crucial point is that the documentation in the distribution that I have says it should work. 2011 shouldn't be so out of date, for a TeX distribution, imo. Installing a new distribution is always a potential solution, but not something I like to do two days before I have to give a presentation. No telling what will break, or not work at first. It will be more efficient to do what I want by hand in the standard article class, and then use regular expression searches and replace to partially convert between handout and presentation. Thank you,though.

Thanks @cfr. I'll look at the TiKZ manual. I had no idea where pgfpages came from.

Sorry--I forgot to mention that I tried letterpaper as well, with different results, but still no difference in the shape of the paper. I'll update the question.

comment Change default font size while using fontspec
It's disappointing to me that people downvote without explaining their downvotes. Now I have no idea whether this is a useful answer or not without doing my own investigation. I know that some people believe in downvoting answers by the person asking the question. (I don't.) Perhaps that's the reason.

comment Need smaller than \tiny
@Werner, that actually is a perfect answer for my particular problem. I wish it was an answer so I could give it a thumbs-up.
