comment Having regular text within a lemma
It is much more common to use \mathrm{Ric} instead, FWIW. (Most geometers would not consider it an operator.)

comment How can I write a corrected format of reference for a target journal
Proof stage is after the journal accepts the paper and is preparing the publication. I've never heard of any serious journal in mathematics or physics that rejects a manuscript due to citation formatting. Even for non-adherence of journal style for the main body it is rare.

comment What is this math symbol and its latex representation?
Looks a lot like the capital C is the calligraphic Euler fonts. See texdoc.net/texmf-dist/doc/fonts/amsfonts/euscript.pdf But seems also slightly different.

comment How can I write a corrected format of reference for a target journal
I can't help but wonder "Why?" Your excerpt clearly states that the journal will apply its on formatting at the proof stage, so why waste your time doing this when the journal has volunteered theirs? // That said, basically you are looking at building, by yourself, a collection of biblatex styles. Then perhaps you should write your own class file that allows you to set in the preamble once and for all the target journal. I know that Loop Space has done something like that once, maybe he can comment.

@Joe: David's answer is what I would try (by recursion), if limited to the world of TeX.

comment Delete commas within numbers
I am not well-versed enough in TeX internals to explain to you exactly what went wrong with your original try. This 'solution' is arrived at from the "guess-and-try" department.

comment How to hyperref prefixed URLs?
@KonradHöffner: Ah, I sort-of see the problem. Try the version I am about to put up in 5 minutes. Some veterans however may come by and chide me for my poor code form.

comment How to hyperref prefixed URLs?
@KonradHöffner: it works for me. Can you past your code? The command \urlprefixabbrv@ should never be called by itself: the defined command should be \urlprefixabbrv@string where string is the class of prefix (in the example above, the command defined is \urlprefixabbrv@dbo). If you can construct a minimum non-working example, please edit it into the question and ping me again, and I'll see if I can debug. Right now I cannot reproduce your error so I don't know what it is that went wrong.

comment minimal looking chapter dependency wheel
If you are not looking for fancy, you can even just use an array environment and make use of the various arrows available in math environments.

comment minimal looking chapter dependency wheel
What you are looking for is a "flow chart". For really complicated ones you can use dia. For less-so ones options abound: any of the common graphics producing methods for LaTeX can work: asymptote or TikZ being common choices. You can also use/abuse packages designed to draw commutative diagrams such as amscd or xypic.

comment How to hyperref prefixed URLs?
Is your syntax for \prefixurl flexible? It would be somewhat easier to code if you allow the syntax \prefixurl{dbo}{City}.

comment biblatex set author font based on bib field
@moewe: go ahead. I don't have much time to write up a complete answer (hence the comment). I agree that \ifkeyword would be cleaner. After reading the comments I personally prefer Alan's option of creating a new entry type. But I can see situations where having the keyword based answer can be helpful (for example, multiple different keywords that can stack).

comment biblatex set author font based on bib field
You are looking for the \iffieldequalstr command. In the current version of the biblatex documentation it is in section 4.6.2 on page 182.

Congrats! (And I will file this info away too in case I need it in the future.)

Try first using the AMScd package; that has the highest chance of being accepted.

comment Write diagrams without a separate style file
Hmm... I should note that in many other cases the easiest thing would be to just re-submit the article with the relevant .sty file included in your submission. But TikZ has so many of them and it may be more hassle than it is worth.

Thanks, that's exactly the sort of comment that I am looking for, and thinking about it I can see the advantage to what you wrote. +1

@Andrew: that's exactly my intended approach.

comment Temporarily changing catcode of %
+1: that's a solution I didn't think of. I'll have to check whether showing white space instead of %d is acceptable, but it does solve the problem of latex not running.

comment Temporarily changing catcode of %
I tagged it "code review" and "best practices" because I only tested it on a limited number of test cases and wanted to check (a) is there an obvious use-case that will break my code and (b) whether the same effect can be achieved with different, more "idiomatically correct" code.
