comment How to cite two different authors with the same surname in BibTeX?
Beautiful. I didn't have to change a thing except for two preamble lines. "Note however, if both authors also have the same initial, (as originally stated in your question title but not your actual example) it will fail." OK--I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. Good to know that biblatex-apa handles it. Thanks.

comment Biblatex: submitting to a journal
@Raphael, for individual users who like to keep up with the latest software, five years is a long time. For an organization that has to customize software and internal procedures involving many people, dealing with constraints and desiderata that go well beyond the use of a single software package (e.g. publishing in multiple formats), five years is not so long. As an individual user, I develop habits and standard software configurations or customizations that "break" when I follow advice that demands that I use the latest version of a package. (Advice for developers: First do no harm.)

comment fontspec and/or xdvipdfmx can't find certain fonts
This doesn't look like a duplicate of the linked answer, which concerns a much older problem. This question is about a recent upgrade of a working system. Or maybe it's just that the answer there isn't at all clear given this OP's question. Angelo's answer here is clearer.

The output isn't obvious. Easy enough to try it out, though.

It might also be necessary to delete and remake the .bbl file. (I'm adding that for other readers. Learned it the hard way.)

comment How to suppress brackets in bibliography with Beamer and natbib
That's reasonable. Should I delete it instead?

comment How to suppress brackets in bibliography with Beamer and natbib
Oh! Found it. On the first try. I redefine \item to change the interline spacing. Taking out the redefinition made the problem in the bibliography go away. Weird that changing interline spacing in \item causes brackets around variable-length spaces in the bibliography. Thanks for nudging me in the right direction, @GonzaloMedina, @cfr.

comment How to suppress brackets in bibliography with Beamer and natbib
Sorry about the natbib style. Was supposed to be chicago. I've edited my question to fix this. Yep, I believe in MWEs, but in this case I didn't see the point. But I was wrong. I just made a minimal version, and the problem went away. Now I have no idea what the source of the problem is. I guess I have to do more detailed investigation, pulling out lines and putting them back in, etc.

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!
