comment Switching from A0 to A1 poster
Depending on your needs, the very simplest way to use this style for an A1 poster would be to create an A0 poster and scale it by 0.7121.

comment Highlight every occurrence of a list of words?
Thanks! I should explain that I chose to do it this way because you wanted multiple colors; otherwise it's simple to write a fully generic script that is fully controlled from the command line, and reads a word list from a file-- i.e. no editing the script every time.

comment Highlight every occurrence of a list of words?
What OS are you on? This is a fun challenge for the TeXies, but it's practically a one-liner if you use a more appropriate tool (sed on Linux/OS X, or an easy-to-install scripting language on Windows).

comment Very poor print quality with Linux Libertine - XeLaTeX
Not xelatex per se, but the way the whole system is configured on the OP's computer. (I shoud have made that clear; it's not a problem everyone has.) My point is, it doesn't have to be the printer: it could be that the PDF output is defective--and it's easy to check.

Perhaps you can upload a one-page PDF somewhere that people can check out?

comment Very poor print quality with Linux Libertine - XeLaTeX
I wouldn't be too sure it's not xelatex (and friends). Back in Ye Olde Days, converting DVI to postscript to PDF would sometimes have the reverse problem: Lousy on-screen fonts that printed fine. The problem was with one of the tools in the toolchain, hence would be on-topic here.

comment Aligning table within latex editor
If it's on OS X, you should be able to just use it. OS X comes with perl, but my texlive (2013) doesn't have latexindent so I can't test it. (I'm waiting for texlive 2015 before I upgrade.) Assuming you have texlive 2014, look for it from the Terminal command line with mdfind -name latexindent.pl, then use it with perl <full-path-to-latexindent.pl> <documentname.tex>.

comment Using hyperref with \addcontentsline
Oops, \addcontentsline is what I meant (and what I used in my question). Hyperref makes bookmarks from them, but it does not create corresponding destinations as it does with \section etc. Is this for a good reason?

comment Using hyperref with \addcontentsline
Out of curiosity: Would you know why hyperref doesn't do this automatically? I.e. hook into \addtocontents (or lower-level equivalent), rather than \section et al. directly. Is it an oversight/design flaw or are there good reasons?

comment How to count all characters including spaces?
Well, it's kind of important! I looked more carefully and I get the impression it depends on the Unix "locale" for the particular computer; if it's not set to UTF-8, you'll get completely wrong character counts if there are many non-ascii characters. Latin-1 and od -c would be a safer catch-all (since characters are one byte in Latin-1)

comment How to count all characters including spaces?
Utf-8 seems like a strange option for character counting, since it expands characters into multiple bytes. Does wc -m understand UTF-8? (I suspect it might, but it's not explained in its documentation).

comment Can I write in “begin{}” something in greek?
@Mary, no you don't have to write that. See my revised answer. If your lemmas are not numbered, you're not using amsthm. What are you using? Add a simplified (minimal) example to your answer -- not to a comment.
