comment Getting Started to Xetex for Devangari?
You may have better luck searching the internet using the more common transliteration of the name of the script, "devanagari", instead of your version, which lacks the "a" between "n" and "g". I also suggest changing your post to say devanagari instead, so that searches from Google or on this site will lead to this post.

comment Amsmath has problems with $e^{\sum{x}}$
Like TH, I cannot reproduce the problem, and yet I don't have the named font file either. This points to the OP having somehow a screwed up font map. Kudos for tracking down that the error is caused by an error in $HOME.

comment How to nest xymatrix in Xy-pic
I noticed. But I can't find a way to do it semi-automatically with Xy-pic. You can always position/draw arrows by hand (or through references as Stefan describes), but I suspect you don't want that. I'll edit if I think of something.

comment Beamer frame numbering in appendix
A slight non sequitur: one of my professors told me never to include the total number of slides in a presentation, because "it will only cause you dread [of running out of time], and the audience despair [of the never ending presentation]". He also said that a good presenter should "know where he is in the talk without referring to a silly number".

comment How to cite chapter in book?
@Trevis: if you have different authors for different chapters, you are better off using @incollection, unless you have a case where a book with a primary author includes a chapter/appendix by someone else, in which case your solution will give clearer information.

@inpart? I've never seen that one. Don't you mean @inbook as the OP stated? One of chapter and pages is required for that.

Or if you use a bibliography manager (such as JabRef), you can let the program keep track of what possible fields are.

To get prepended subscripts, you may also consider using the tensor package, see tex.stackexchange.com/questions/334/non-kludgey-left-subscripts

Ah, it seems I misunderstood the question.

Doesn't \newcommand contains a built-in check that the command you are trying to define is not already defined?

comment Print two-sided B5 book on A4 “corners”
If you want the crop marks, you can combine this with the crop package if you use the odd option to print only the crop marks on the odd side. One caveat, the way that crop determines odd/evenness is based on page number, so if you switch up between different numbering schemes (roman for front matter for example) you may need to be a tad careful to make sure chapters open only on the righthand side.
