comment Is it more common to type period inside dollars or outside?
And don't worry too much about the "punctuation for sentences ending in displayed formula" issue if you are preparing the document for a commercial publisher. House styles overrule whatever you personally like. (I had just dealt with some author proofs where every other displayed equation there is a change log of the form "removed \; before punctuation".)

comment \multicolumn issues
The OP probably would want the last lines to be \cline{1-3} \multicolumn{1}{|l|}{Average and uncertainty}, considering the examples he linked to.

comment ASCII graphs in LaTeX document?
How is the parser supposed to know to add edges between the nodes? And how it is supposed to know when not to add edges between the nodes? If you are flexible to using a better-formed syntax, maybe you can consider graphviz? ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/graphviz

comment How to test whether the starred-version of a command is defined?
Both very good answers, accepting this one sort of randomly, and because the last sentence got me thinking enough to come up with another way around my problem. Thanks!

comment What's the best way to write e-mail addresses?
@user25957: I am not familiar with TexWorks, do this or other questions in the texworks tag help? If not try asking a new question about it.

comment Insert ams classification in scrartcl
Hum, are you sure you have posted all the code that is sufficient to reproduce your problem? I am wondering if you have some modified definition of \deffootnote and \deffootnotemark? KOMA controls the presentation of footnotes in two different places, one is via \thefootnotemark which the code I gave suppresses, the other is via the formatting options in \deffootnote. It is possible that somewhere in your workflow the footnote presentation is redefined so that the footnote definition is something like \thefootnotemark), which will cause you to see what you saw.

comment Insert ams classification in scrartcl
The version is included in the logs, when you, for example, issue latex filename.tex. There would be a line that says something like Document Class: scrartcl 2012/05/15 v3.11 KOMA-Script document class (article)

comment Insert ams classification in scrartcl
@manenir: I tried the code you posted. There are no parentheses. Which distribution of TeX are you using? Which version of koma-script?

comment Insert ams classification in scrartcl
What parenthesis sign? Please edit your original post with a MWE showing the problem. With just a vanilla scrartcl document and using the code from this answer I don't see any parenthesis signs.

comment Insert ams classification in scrartcl
What do you mean by "this doesn't work"? Does it not show up? Do you get an error?

@MarcoDaniel: thanks. But as a rule I try to keep my MWE, well, minimal. :-)

@MarcoDaniel I know that \ref{test1} will give me nothing in my MWE. But that's not the problem.

Oh crikey.... thanks. That's really obvious in hindsight.

comment @namedef and math mode
@MarcoDaniel: \labelretrieve is meant to be \labelget, made a mistake with "copying and pasting" from two different files. That the command \label requires an anchor has nothing to do with it, I think. Else it wouldn't even work in text mode.

comment How does one set custom labels for description lists?
This seems to be answering my comments here. (For those who didn't read through the whole thread; incidentally this also means that the hyperref package is used for this answer.)

comment Convert from historic LaTeX-based software called “The Publisher”
Lastly, this seems to be the basic help file for the program written in its own markup language. The last paragraph states "ArborText was founded in 1982 by David L. Rodgers, James J. Sterken, and Paul B. Grosso." The syntax looks to be something similar to XML; presumably it is not too hard to write a PanDoc parser to convert the mark-up to LaTeX or HTML + MathJax.

comment Convert from historic LaTeX-based software called “The Publisher”
The software is apparently in a suite made by a company called ArborText: cs.rutgers.edu/~watrous/txt/681

Wow... the program dates to at least 1988. Here's a website from UBC in 1994 describing their local licensed copy: astro.ubc.ca/resources/Computing/WordProc/publisher.html

@Joy: use line breaks in your code.
