comment Serial key in pdf document
@mvfs, it's not quite square on, but take a look at security.stackexchange.com. There are some questions about securing PDFs. Base your question on what's there already and it will be less likely to get closed. Good luck,

comment robust version of \@ifnextchar?
Yes, that's the idea, thanks. Users with old engines won't be able to use ^ and _ in section titles, but if I don't add a check, they won't be able to use them at all.

comment robust version of \@ifnextchar?
Please stop me if this qualifies as "ask a new question" material, but would you say that \providecommand\protected{\relax} is a good enough fall-back for non-e-TeX systems? Or ought I to include an explicit check for e-TeX?

Now that the question has been answered, could anyone help tag it properly?

Brilliant, thanks! That does it indeed. I could never get my head around all the protection rackets going on in LaTeX...

Thanks! \protect didn't work, but \protected did (as suggested by @egreg to Alan Munn in another channel...)

Ok, added a simplified version of the actual use case. Sorry the example was too minimal!

comment robust version of \@ifnextchar?
@egreg, the actual use is indeed in another macro: It is part of gb4e.sty, and it's used to detect when a subscript is immediately followed by a superscript or vice versa. If there's a solution specific to use via a macro, that's all that's needed here.

comment How to define/attach acronym to figure without showing it in the text?
\phantom takes up space. You could enclose it in a \rlap (and avoid leaving whitespace before and after), but the approach is a hack anyway.

comment apacite: capitalized significant words of journal title
See this question for the context to this problem. I'm not sure I would call this one a duplicate, but the linked answers do make it redundant.

comment Preserving capitalization in BibTeX titles
I don't consider this a good idea. Words can be protected from lowercasing with a simple set of braces, and \uppercase is not only overkill but needlessly problem-prone.

comment Including sample output as whole pages
I see, yes, that would be great if I can get it to work out (for independent reasons --- I may need to use a different document class for the displayed document). I'll check the pgfpages documentation with this in mind.

Thanks! I'll need some time to get back to this and digest your answer...
