comment Greek pdf-bookmarks with greektex package; is it possible?
@egreg I don't think greektex does support english hyphenation. But as with Chinese, it seems there is often a need to sprinkle in some latin words (say, brand names or units) in real world greek texts.

comment Greek pdf-bookmarks with greektex package; is it possible?
@gstat I extended my answer a bit to address these issues. Basically, if you're on a 16bit system like xetex or luatex you're safe. Otherwise you need a font encoding supporting english and greek, but you can still use unicode for input. I hacked in the math stuff, but I don't know whether this is the proper way. The \mathcode definitions of greektex don't seem to work after \DeclareInputText.

@gstat The same holds if you use unicode as input encoding!

comment “Reference does not exist” warning with \includeonly
The warning refers to hyperlinks generated by hyperref. When the pages to be referred to don't exist in your document, there really is no way to generate a link to them. So the warning is correct.

comment How to stop mathmode straddling two lines (without overfull boxes)?
The problem is not specific to math. The same would happen for a sequence of fffffffffffffffffff or any other non-hyphenable text. The problem is simply that there is no acceptable line break before your formula. This effect is especially prominent in the first line of text, so you would see a much better result by writing longer paragraphs with a lot of explaining text in the beginning ;-) You could try setting \relpenalty=9999 and \binoppenalty=9999 and \tolerance=9999, this way formulas would only be broken in a real emergency.

comment How productive are you with TikZ?
Excellent explanation! I'd replace "4. Repetition" by "4. Reuse".

comment Shouldn't there be larger sizes of the CM math fonts?
@tohecz I didn't mean to say you should be using smaller design sizes than usual when typesetting a book. Using the "10pt" option in LaTeX is completely fine. But for posters authors are frequently searching for a "14pt" or a "17pt" option in the hope to get larger print, and this is wrong. Even "12pt" is nearly unreadable for cmr in my opinion. If this is not the case for the OP here, fine. But a title in cmr17 should be really short to be still readable, no need for maths there.

comment Shouldn't there be larger sizes of the CM math fonts?
The larger the design size is, the harder the font gets to read, in particular for cmr. I find cmr17 immensely hard to read because the strokes are so thin compared to the size of the letters. It is meant for a few words (like "The TeXbook") on the title page. cmr5...cmr17 are all meant for a reading situation when you are holding a book in your hand. Standing in front of a poster is completely different. Larger distance, inconsistent lighting, bad angles. You move while discussing different things, people are moving around you. You should do all you can to make it easy to read.

@LevBishop Wow, now this is embarassing. I didn't know this at all. That's the solution, obviously. If you turn this comment into an answer, I will accept it.

comment Shouldn't there be larger sizes of the CM math fonts?
For making posters it is not a good idea at all to use large design sizes! They are for fairy tale books or the like. I advise to make the poster as a normal document at much smaller page size (with fonts of usual design size) and magnify when printing.

comment Marginpar appearing on the wrong side (using memoir)
So you're not using an insertion at all for this! Are there any drawbacks with respect to the original definition?

comment Does anyone know what a cmap file has to look like
@egreg did you infer this from the numbers in front? Some characters are missing, for instance <18> which is "perthousandzero" and doesn't seem to have a unicode point. Same with t1.cmap. I counted again, it's 64.
