Instead of \multirow, maybe you should use p? en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Tables#Text_wrapping_in_tables (or perhaps tabularx: stackoverflow.com/a/790955 )

Why would you like to avoid using tables? The type of presentation you want is basically a table, no?

comment Debian packages
@Ivica: what is \fs{2} supposed to output? Almost certainly what you need to do is to follow the instructions in the link given in the above comment, and edit the configuration for the LaTeX preamble to load the appropriate LaTeX package. We may be able to help you track down the appropriate package, but you will need to tell us what the expected outcome is. The actual configuration of Moodle, however, is likely to be off-topic here.

comment Debian packages
@SvendTveskæg: Digging around, Moodle suggests that one installs an up-to-date TeX distribution to provide the backend for the automatic LaTeX to GIF filter. So theoretically Debian's somewhat out-of-date TeXLive distribution may have something to do with the problem.

comment How to use chronology package to draw this timeline?
the phrase "where is year should be a major tick": do you mean "where each year should be a major tick"?

comment Nice scientific pictures show off
Nice. Would it make more sense to colour/style the lines so that the radial directions and the "circular" directions are distinguished upstairs?

comment After making a mistake while citing, BibTex doesn't run anymore
If it says 'file ended while scanning use of \emph' you may want to double check your source files to make sure all braces { and } are paired properly.

comment After making a mistake while citing, BibTex doesn't run anymore
Have you tried removing all "generated" files (such as the .aux, .bbl, .blg, .out, .log) from your directory and then running latex followed by bibtex?

comment numbering of theorems in chapters
You need to provide a lot more information for this to be answerable. Consider coming up with a MWE and including it in your question.

comment “Flatten” macros prior to sharing LaTeX file
@cfr I tried with separation; as it happens my usual workflow already puts the commands in a custom .sty file; all I did was change the filename to reflect the requirement (I assume, based on the documentation) that it ends in -private.sty.

comment “Flatten” macros prior to sharing LaTeX file
@TorbjørnT.: you answered with de-macro in that linked question. The documentation for that package on the CTAN website is very brief. Would you saying a few more words about it? (I've just tested it and the result doesn't look too promising: it introduced an extra brace to the preamble causing a syntax error, and made zero changes to the body. It is likely that I am using it wrong.)

comment “Flatten” macros prior to sharing LaTeX file
@DavidCarlisle: which is why I also asked for existing tools. For simple definitions with no arguments, a regexp is easy enough to do by hand. But for definitions with arguments and possibly optional arguments, I wouldn't trust myself to cobble together something in a short amount of time. If someone has a nice perl/python script that can reliably handle the parsing (up to certain known caveats), it would make me very happy.
