comment What is best method to insert an ellipsis in a (Xe)TeX document?
This is definitely not the right way to do it. \ldots is the right way to do it.

comment (resolved) A conditional independence symbol that looks good with \mid?
@wipet you are entirely correct - the question was based on a mistake that I had made. (See the edited question for details.) I am terribly sorry for wasting people's time with it.

comment How to put a full citation in the text *without* adding an entry to the bibliography
Don't get me wrong, I've been meaning to switch to biblatex for ages, and in a way this issue gave me the push I needed. I did work out how to do it the other night, but it took quite a long time to work out how to get the formatting I wanted. (I'd inadvertently copied-and-pasted code that used a style file that replaced author names with a --- character in some cases, and I couldn't work out how to prevent this.) Your solution is simpler than what I came up with, so +1.

comment How to put a full citation in the text *without* adding an entry to the bibliography
The part in the body needs to be a full citation, containing all the bibliographic data. (Also I'm really quite specifically asking for a bibtex solution, not biblatex. The reason being that biblatex is a complex package, and for someone who only knows bibtex it's quite a lot of work to learn it for such a simple thing.)

comment How to put a full citation in the text *without* adding an entry to the bibliography
@Mico I was writing an internal report, in which I needed to list my own publications, interspersed with a few section headings and comments, in a separate section from the references. Because it was quite a short report and my publications outnumbered the ones I wanted to cite, it would have looked silly if they were all duplicated again in the references section. In the end I stayed up late working out how to do it with biblatex, but a simple bibtex solution would still be useful for future readers.

comment Convert tikz to \includegraphics
Huh. When I used \tikzexternaldisable and \tikzexternalenable to cut out the first figure (the one that was working), all the rest started working. I've no idea why, maybe it's because that one used circuitikz. But in any case I've got pdfs for all my plots now, which is great. (Just posting this in case someone has the same issue in the future.)

comment Convert tikz to \includegraphics
@bene thanks, \tikzexternalize is exactly what I was looking for. Please post it as an answer so I can accept. (Unfortunately in my case it fails for all but one of my images with some mysterious font-related error, so I suspect this job is going to be a bit of a headache.)
