comment How to cite an article from Arxiv using bibtex
Neither eprint nor url are standard fields in the current BibTeX. You can't hardly fault a style for not implementing a non-standard field. (Though I thought I heard a rumour here that the next version of BibTeX will have proper support of electronic documents.)

(Also, if you are submitting to IMRN, why not just let the publisher/copyeditor worry about it?)

comment End of theorem marker placement
Did you try using the \qedhere command? If so, what are the results?

comment Colors Not Rendering Correctly
I can confirm the problem. Just tried to define a color with CMYK values of 0.6, 0.5, 0.4, 0.3, and the output is 0.66, 0.34, 0, 0.7. Seems a bit strange to me. Maybe there's something funny about the color profile? (On the other hand, the RGB model works perfectly.)

comment Colors Not Rendering Correctly
Slightly tangential: instead of {rgb}{.582,.672,.809} you can pass the arguments {RGB}{149,172,207} instead. Also note that the argument for the RGB model runs from 0 to 255, not 1 to 256.

comment How to find a package name by a command name?
Heh, my scalebox comes from graphics. In any case, would it be better if you searched for '\\def\\commandname' instead? Searching for scalebox gives me a whole lotta other packages that use scalebox but not define it.

Why do you want to use split inside alignat?

comment What is a good way to show changes between two versions
It puts a box around the words that you deleted, and a double-box around the words you added. But this doesn't work completely well with latex when there are commands involved in the changes, as then the braces may not pair up correctly. See also the documentation for texdiff that Charles mentioned earlier.

Oh, this is great! I have been meaning to look up if there is a package that does exactly this. You pre-empted my asking.

comment Greek letter in math mode appears lower than the rest of the statement
Yes. That's the way the letter is meant to be. Same thing for \gamma, \eta, and \mu. \phi\psi\zeta\xi also have descenders (not a complete list). Nothing to worry about.

comment vertically aligning vectors and matrices
Thank you Lev, now my toolbox gets one more tool! Though I am undecided about the strut: I can't decide whether it is better to stretch all rows by the same, possibly much too large amount, or let the height of each row be decided by its tallest element. (Say if the example has \int_0^{2^{3^{4^5}}} f(x) dx in the third column of the third row of the bmatrix, which would you prefer?)

comment Lyx template for scientific paper
Oops! I forgot I am not at MathOverflow where RHS is standard abbreviation. Right Hand Side is indeed what was meant. Sorry.

One option, of course, is to just go to arxiv.org, find a paper whose formatting you like, and download the source (on the RHS, under Downloads, click "Other formats" which will allow you to download source when available). And then you can just strip the body and be left with a skeleton file you can just fill out.

If you do it once, you can keep using it again, and again, and again... In any case, "looks great" is really a subjective thing. Can you be more clear on what you actually want?
