comment parameter passing to \verb|| environment
Did you look at the Link that I posted? The \string command converts the one character that follows it into a string. So you can type \string_ to get the underscore character, or \string{ to get the open brace character etc. In your revised example you are almost surely using the command wrong.

comment Is there any way to do a correct word count of a LaTeX document?
Just tried it on a recent paper I wrote: yeah, detex is wildly off. I get even better results from piping dvi2tty to wc.

I cannot help but think that calling perl just to do chomp and a regex is way too much of an overkill. =) Why not just ' ... | wc -w | tr -d [:space:]'?

And even if you don't want to use the vim-latex macros, you can define silly short cuts like I do: dpmms.cam.ac.uk/~ww278/#texres

comment Can I create music sheets with LaTeX?
@Arthur: that's news to me. (Seriously. The last time I used Lilypond was close to 6 years ago, and back then it was based on TeX. I wonder what made them switch.)

comment Automatically numbering constants
Well, in your answer I think if I just use \ref* instead of \ref it will be okay with hyperref. Though with showkeys it will still generate a bunch of new keys in the margin, which one might argue is actually preferable.

comment Automatically numbering constants
I am not completely thrilled about accepting my own answer, but I feel that the package I linked to is a better solution then hacking my own commands.

comment Adding line numbers to latex and respecting equations
Take a look at ulineno.pdf from ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/lineno (the user's manual). It explains why lineno has trouble with equations and paragraphs containing equations, and also some work-arounds.

comment Average integral symbol
Generally the first place to check for this kind of things is the Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List ctan.org/tex-archive/info/symbols/comprehensive On page 71 it quotes the answer Vivi gives below and attributes it to the UK TeX FAQ.

comment How to typeset flowcharts in LaTeX?
Both answers given are very good. I'm going to accept Dima's because he gave a larger list, and also that GraphViz will probably be what I go for. The syntax is, I think, slightly more intuitive than TikZ. The fact that the user has less control in aligning nodes, I think, maybe a plus.
