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.

oh so it is. I haven't used utf8x for so long that I can't tend to forget what the issues are.

comment How do I make sure images are CMYK?
@Daniel The reason I hadn't included the imagemagick sample command line was that I felt it was beyond the scope of this forum. But I have now included it.

comment How to represent cross and tick in itemize bullets?
Hmm no actually you don't, somehow I mistakenly assumed that specifying the label after the item definition was an enumitem thing, but it is not. Thanks, answer updated.

comment Specifying eulervm as mathfont in fontspec
the option is also Scale=MatchLowercase which you would specify as \setmathfont[Scale=MatchLowercase]{Neo Euler}

comment How to specify an arbitrary (possibly non-integer) font size in LaTeX
if using the CM fonts, the fix-cm package fixes these scaling issues.

could you post the bibtex source for that line, it would help see what is going on.

comment Matching phonetic/IPA font for Minion Pro
from the fontspec documentations, "For cases when a specific font with a specific feature set is going to be re-used many times in a document, it is inefficient to keep calling \fontspec for every use. While the \fontspec command does not define a new font instance after the first call, the feature options must still be parsed and processed. For this reason, new commands can be created for loading a particular font family with the \newfontfamily command" \newcommand effectively re-execute the command itself at every call.

comment Matching phonetic/IPA font for Minion Pro
Indeed @egreg and Alan are right but I was simply trying to show the effect of the different option while keeping closely to the original code. I will amend my answer to include what the actual TeX file should contain.
