comment How to prevent paragraph breaks after theorem environments?
To address your first comment: yes, it does look funny to state a theorem in the middle of a paragraph. But it does not look as funny to state definitions in the middle of a paragraph, especially when the definition is just one line long and motivated by the part of the paragraph immediately above it. Now imagine several definitions being made in succession in the same paragraph. \noindent is of course the obvious option. But I would prefer a solution that doesn't break when, say, new paragraph is denoted by vertical spacing instead of indentation.

comment Getting Started to Xetex for Devangari?
You may have better luck searching the internet using the more common transliteration of the name of the script, "devanagari", instead of your version, which lacks the "a" between "n" and "g". I also suggest changing your post to say devanagari instead, so that searches from Google or on this site will lead to this post.

comment Amsmath has problems with $e^{\sum{x}}$
Like TH, I cannot reproduce the problem, and yet I don't have the named font file either. This points to the OP having somehow a screwed up font map. Kudos for tracking down that the error is caused by an error in $HOME.

comment How to nest xymatrix in Xy-pic
I noticed. But I can't find a way to do it semi-automatically with Xy-pic. You can always position/draw arrows by hand (or through references as Stefan describes), but I suspect you don't want that. I'll edit if I think of something.

comment Beamer frame numbering in appendix
A slight non sequitur: one of my professors told me never to include the total number of slides in a presentation, because "it will only cause you dread [of running out of time], and the audience despair [of the never ending presentation]". He also said that a good presenter should "know where he is in the talk without referring to a silly number".

comment How to cite chapter in book?
@Trevis: if you have different authors for different chapters, you are better off using @incollection, unless you have a case where a book with a primary author includes a chapter/appendix by someone else, in which case your solution will give clearer information.

comment How to cite chapter in book?
@inpart? I've never seen that one. Don't you mean @inbook as the OP stated? One of chapter and pages is required for that.

Or if you use a bibliography manager (such as JabRef), you can let the program keep track of what possible fields are.

comment Using LaTeX to render hypergeometric function notation
To get prepended subscripts, you may also consider using the tensor package, see tex.stackexchange.com/questions/334/non-kludgey-left-subscripts

Ah, it seems I misunderstood the question.

comment How to conditionally define a new command in LaTeX?
Doesn't \newcommand contains a built-in check that the command you are trying to define is not already defined?

comment Print two-sided B5 book on A4 “corners”
If you want the crop marks, you can combine this with the crop package if you use the odd option to print only the crop marks on the odd side. One caveat, the way that crop determines odd/evenness is based on page number, so if you switch up between different numbering schemes (roman for front matter for example) you may need to be a tad careful to make sure chapters open only on the righthand side.

comment Include without pagebreak
Is it even possible? That \include keeps tracks of counters and references is tied to the fact that it generates a separate .aux for each included file. Perhaps the easiest thing it to just modify your work flow: forget about page breaks in the drafting stage and use \include and once the content is set, recompile using \input?

comment Resources For Calculating Average Sentence Length
Or if you don't have Word: there are tools to count the number of words in a tex file. To count sentences, we'll just count the number of periods (unless you use a lot of commands/math with the character, you shouldn't need to strip the tex file) cat file.tex | sed 's/[^.]//g' | wc -c should give you a number that is one more than the total number of period marks used.

Maybe use a description list with some counters?

comment \colon for maps in opposite direction
I think it is also something semantical in addition to spacing. : is interpreted as a relation (I guess the ratio). At least that's what the AMS Short Math Guide ftp.ams.org/pub/tex/doc/amsmath/short-math-guide.pdf suggests to me.

comment \colon for maps in opposite direction
Don't use \colon then. It is defined to have small spacing on the left and big spacing on the right. Maybe you should dig into the code and find the definition for \colon and define a command like \rcolon that swaps the spacing before and after and use that.

comment Is there any way to get real-time compilation for LaTeX?
@frabjous: I'll take a look at that. latexmk is not bundled in the distribution I use, but most likely because I am using a heavily customized set from TeXLive 2010 under Gentoo Linux.

Ah, you missed the link. That's alright. I hope for your sake you didn't try to Google "LaTeX string". It is one of those seemingly harmless combinations of words...
