comment XDVI and composition managers
Yes. Just run it with the -watchfile <n> flag, where <n> is the number of seconds to wait between checking for file changes. See man xdvi for more details.

comment End of theorem marker placement
...which is why I'm glad you took a look also. I agree it is hard to figure out what the "intent" is. I am a bit surprised that OUP opted for hacking amsthm instead of ntheorem, which, IIRC, already has the same sets of defaults (open box for thms and filled box for proofs), and works better.

comment Citing a range of papers (using numeric keys)?
(I also realized that the amsrefs package can do it, but I didn't feel like retyping 92 citation entries.)

Ah, the cite package. That gives a minimal work solution to my problem. Thanks.

comment whitespace/brace/indentation conventions for LaTeX programming
Edit the question, near the bottom right of the textfield, there is a small checkbox labeled "community wiki". Tick it.

comment LaTeX template for a technical reference manual / user guide?
if you search this website a bit, you will find a lot of recommendations for front-ends. For example, tex.stackexchange.com/questions/339/latex-editors-ides has quite a few answers. For your third question about DITA, I suggest you split it off as a separate question, especially since it is not covered by the title of this post.

Ah, I remember seeing his name and title for his presentation at 2010 TUG.

comment Managing margin notes
I thought marginpars are already floats? Absent a better idea, one thing you could play with is the width of the text area and the width of the margin.

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?)

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.
