Learnt LaTeX while in placement in my third year in 1999 when my assignment was to work on a massive code but was only given an laptop to do it, so had to find something to do during the long hours the thing took to compile, and solitaire doesn't remain fun for that long. I haven't look back since. Now a researcher at the University of Bristol. All my outputs are in LaTeX from papers to presentations to posters.

Any reasons why you have to use verbatim, could you use the listings package instead?

comment A better \pm symbol
Thanks @Werner I knew I had seen that question before. I was desperately looking for it and was starting to think I imagined it. So for the kpfonts Peter you will be looking at the jkp family I think.

looking through tug.dk/FontCatalogue/mathfonts.html the kpfonts seem to fit your requirements, at least for the plus-minus character. there is a choice of serif and sans-serif shapes as well.

Doesn't the shape of that character depend on the font used?

comment PDF bookmark going to the bottom of the previous page in case when caption header is on the top of a page
This is very useful. One thing though, for me, if I put the definition in the preamble, it gives an error after the table of content (which is a \section* by default in my class, ie. scrartcl) putting the definition after \tableofcontent fixes the problem. I also added a definition for subsection and subsubsection.

comment Missing \endscname inserted citation
Depending where your error happens, you should use bibtex8 rather than bibtex to compile your bibliography as bibtex doesn't support UTF-8 encoding. Alternatively, using biber and biblatex could help.
