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)

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.

Sure, why not. But I trust the OP already has a basic set-up working.

(c) The lemma environment is already in math mode. How have you been using it?

Also: (a) Digits cannot be part of latex macro names; {mylemma} is fine, but {mylemma1} should give you an error. (b) Use a blank line, not `\\` between paragraphs.

@Mary, theorem environments handle their own numbering. You'll only need to use \newtheorem once for all lemmas, and you should put the definition in your preamble, before \begin{document}. Try it out!

Ok, I'll take your advice on this. The OP must know what I meant but other readers could indeed have no idea.

comment Documents with typical LaTeX errors
Encoding nightmare is about right: It's quite common to have a few characters in the pasted text, like Word's infamous directed quotes, which are silently dropped by TeX. They often look fine in my LaTeX editor, and I only notice when I look at my formatted document carefully. It's a little OT but it's worth mentioning...

comment Answers at the end of the exam document
@Holene, do you want to retain the boxes around each solution? If you don't want them, it should be easier to format the solutions in an appealing way.
