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 Larger than or smaller than decision
Followup to @GonzaloMedina 's answer. If F and P represent variables, keep them as they are so they are italicized and spaced properly. If they are text, use \text{FP}. (A general principle for text in equations.)

comment List of equations, including equation contents and caption
One design possibility: use the environ package to wrap equations in a NewEnviron that writes its BODY both to the current document and an external file. At the end of your document, input some macros to change the behavior of the saved BODY and input the external file. You could then produce your cheatsheet as a separate document if you wished.

comment How to put equation numbers in these equations while keeping them aligned with the “equal to” sign
There's a solution here: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/98397/enumerate-formulas/… (delete the \notag in align to number all the lines).

comment Why is LaTeX so complicated?
@barbarabeeton It's kopka & daly. Took a while on google to find it. amazon.com/Guide-LaTeX-Edition-Helmut-Kopka/dp/0321173856. Pretty costly, though.

comment Include characters with accents and diereses within square root
@egreg I knew (and said) the \emph was a hack. Without knowing the OP's use cases I don't know whether that's a problem.
