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. :-)

comment @namedef and math mode
@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.

The software is apparently in a suite made by a company called ArborText: cs.rutgers.edu/~watrous/txt/681

comment Convert from historic LaTeX-based software called “The Publisher”
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.

comment LaTeX 'Missing $' Cannot find the reason
Please post a minimal working example illustrating the error. In particular, include the necessary packages from your preamble for reproducing the error. In particular, how are you defining \vect{} or which packages are you loading that provides that command?

comment Typing the semidirect product symbol
The ams packages are distributed in several different families. Take a look at ftp.ams.org/pub/tex/doc/amsmath/amsldoc.pdf and ftp.ams.org/pub/tex/doc/amsfonts/amsfndoc.pdf to see what the amsmath and amssymb packages contain.

@wasteofspace: somewhat related, by modern standards CM-Super really isn't that huge anymore.

comment How to smoothen an Asymptote plot
And in the interest of teaching a man to fish and all that: here's the online documentation. By specifying the function T you can even make the sampling not evenly spaced, if you know a priori where you need higher "resolution".

comment Glossary and list of acronyms in the same page
Please provide a minimum working example showing what you are doing now, and a description of how that differs from what you want to do. In particular, how are you building the glossary and acronym lists?

comment Is there an (easy) way to create or personalize .bst files?
Word to the wise: think very carefully when you answer those questions. It is not fun to have to start over again if you make a mistake. (A friend asked me to put together a .bst file that her thesis advisor would approve. After the fifth time she said, "oh wait, maybe option X would be better", I was really tempted to reconsider our friendship.)

comment Automatic new directory for new files
I am not that familiar with Windows, but if MikTeX (or whatever LaTeX distribution you use) supports command line commands, and if your IDE allows you to change the command used to compile the document, then in principle you can write a batch file to do so. But if you want a more tailor-made solution, please edit your original post to include (1) Operating system [I assume Windows] (2) LaTeX distribution (3) Any software you use in the workflow to create your document: what editor you use, how you compile the TeX file into DVI/PDF etc.

comment End of theorem marker placement
@barbara: wow. I have to admit (rather shamefully) that "because ntheorem didn't exists" never crossed my mind as a possible answer; but now that you pointed it out, it seems so very natural.
