comment How does one set custom labels for description lists?
His second answer however, is wonderful. I'll vote for that once my vote limit cap is cleared in a few hours.

comment How does one set custom labels for description lists?
Sweet. Just tried it out and it works well. Ideally I would have liked to have the key and the displayed label possibly different, but I think I know roughly how to hack it to a way that works. (I'll up-vote this answer in a bit; I've hit my daily vote limit so cannot vote right now.)

comment LaTeX/XeTeX setup Tamil/Indic languages
Sorry, but I've really limited experience with Xetex, and had never played with the Tamil package myself. Good luck!

comment How to split all BibTeX referenced entries from a big BibTeX database to a copy?
Is the recipient going to edit the bibliography? If not you can just send the .bbl file generated by BibTeX, which should contain only those citation entries actually used in the document. Open up the .bbl file in a text editor and you'll see what I mean.

comment Is there a way to stop the vertical spread of multiple super- and sub-scripts?
It is a bit hard to find. (Which keywords would one search for?) I came across the package a short while back by accident when I was looking for some way to typeset nuclides.

comment What's the best way to write e-mail addresses?
Good idea. One small caveat is that <code>\email</code> is already defined in certain document classes (for example <code>amsart</code>).

comment Installing TTF fonts in LaTeX
@ShreevatsaR: you are absolutely right. I didn't even consider the second option as being the question that was asked. My bad.

Should an upvote be given to a generically helpful answer that does not address the question asked at all? He accurately described the work-around I alluded to in my question, but did not provide an answer to the specific question asked. So no, I don't think it deserve an upvote.

comment Using custom symbols
Besides, when you have such a nice collection of ancient fonts math.harvard.edu/computing/latex/tetex/help/Catalogue/entries/… I am somewhat doubtful new symbols are strictly necessary. =)
