I'm definitely getting that impression -- but I'm mid-thesis, and right now what I'm using is working. Mostly. And wrangling with LaTeX, while kind of fun in a what-the-fuck-debugging-time way, won't actually get this PhD written any faster... Next piece of LaTeX writing, though? Definitely.

Ah, excellent. That feels like a bit of a hack, but it definitely gets the job done. Thanks!

@lockstep -- \xspace is exactly what I'm after, thanks. Would you care to add that as an answer so I can mark it accepted?

comment How can I avoid extra whitespace after using a macro before punctuation?
That's the problem I'm trying to solve, @jonalv -- I would like to use the same macro with and without a following space, and would like LaTeX to figure out which is which. If I define \entity as \newcommand{\entity}{\emph{Name of Entity} } I also get this behaviour ("\ " seems equivalent in command definitions to " ").

That works, but I'd greatly prefer a way to make the macro behave sensibly that doesn't require me to manually encode spaces.
