Working on several mss calling for increasing TeX sophistication - so learning ...

I tend to try to answer my own questions myself (often with ugly hacks!) so don't ask many here. As an answerer I'm better at do-it-outside-TeX and at helping newbies with easy questions than at competing with the wizards. I've used but never written a macro that needed \makeatletter.

comment How best to differentiate questions and answers in a document without compromising on typesetting and readability?
Since the questions seem to be short and the answers long, consider boxing the former and using plain text for the latter. Then page breaks in a box would be less likely, and possibly easily preventable.

comment Problems with \eqref{}
Have you compiled multiple times? LaTeX can't get the references right until you do.

Can you compile anything else? Do you still have the old TeX file to try?

comment Hypersphere inscribed within hypercube
You can illustrate the same geometric paradox by inscribing 2^n hyperspheres in the corners of an n dimensional hypercube. Then inscribe the largest hypersphere possible in the center. For n > 10 its diameter is >1!

comment FIles produced by compiling LaTeX source code
Some TeX compose-and-compile environments can be told to delete those auxiliary files when done. What tools do you use?

I think elsarticle allows for maketitle. See tex.stackexchange.com/questions/84573/…

comment How can I change the position of equation number locally if I am not using the amsmath package?
Since you only have to show your students once what they might do in their own documents, construct an example with numbers on the left by hand (assuming you do numbers on the right as your TeX default in the rest of the book).

comment Ensure position of latex code in Inkscape Graphic?
I doubt there's a satisfactory answer to this problem, since inkscape can't know the size of the TeX compiled text. I hope I'm wrong.

comment The text in pdf is not smooth
+1 for nice answer to your own question. You don't have to start Task Manager to run a command line program. Just type cmd in the search bar when you open the start menu (windows 7).

comment Formatting in Latex - Pseudocode
+1 for a newcomer answering his/her own question. Edit it now so that someone can cut out your code, paste it and have it compile. (It's wonderful sometimes how urgency can beget creativity.)
