comment Put entire thesis on one A0 poster?
@Raphael, thanks for the explanation. At our university, the MSc thesis comprises 60 ECTS in total, and some students even combine the thesis with their internship. In such constellations you can easily end up at >150 page.

Imagine a package such that the characters at the beginning of each line make up a sentence... and that arranges this automatically :D!

comment How to break this long radical into multiple lines?
How about using )^{1/2} instead of a root? would be easier to split up.

comment Block quote with big quotation marks
@AlanMunn, right, with the colored box it would loo weird. I use the quotation box in the following manner: it spans only ~50% of the text width, and is set flush right. The background has been removed. Now if the lower mark is in the margin it actually looks pretty sweet, because the text in the box is aligned with the right hand side margin. See also: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanging_punctuation NB: It might also look good to have both marks in the margin, if they were a bit smaller and the text still spanned the full width (as in your examples).

comment Block quote with big quotation marks
@AlanMunn: I'd like to set this beautiful quote environment flush right, and leave the lower quotation mark hanging into the margin. I tried hacking a bit with \hspace{}, and the result is beautiful—but it is not a flexible approach. Do you have any idea how to realize this?

comment Equations in the margin: automatic flush right or left?
@Herbert, thanks for the answer, but I am experiencing a problem with your solution. If my marginnote only contains an equation, there is a large skip / space inside of the marginnote, that pushes it down and does not appear at the right spot anymore. Is there a workaround to avoid this? I can just do \vspace{-...}, but that's quite a dirty hack.
