comment Text Editor to Keep Bilingual Versions of Text in Sync
I wasn't sure where to ask... I plan to use XeTex, babel and LaTeX3, this much is sure. If you have any idea where I could search for an answer, please let me know in the comment section and close down my question if you wish. Thanks.

comment Package natbib Error: Bibliography not compatible with author-year citations
with the natbib package, replacing citet* with a simple cite solved the problem, which I have not been able to identify.

@YiannisLazarides, this doesn't work with environments, right?, e.g. \let\v\verbatim

comment Remove colon in the caption of a figure without using caption package
I also use the elsarticle class, slightly redefined, because it's pretty and works well, not necessarily to submit to Elsevier journals.

comment Obey spaces with URL package (path command)
Thanks Stefan, that's indeed what I ended up doing: apparently hyperref loads url already so \PassOptionsToPackage is a pretty good way to go.

Would that work with beamer? I guess I'll find out soon enough...

FYI, I have posted instructions on how to install gnuplot, and make it talk to latex, on Mac OS X here: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/71160/…

comment Setting up LaTeX -> DVIPS -> PS2PDF with Shell-Escape (in TeXStudio)
I have posted instructions on how to install gnuplot on Mac OS X here: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/71160/… I haven't tried on Windows yet, but since I have it on Linux in another partition on the same laptop I don't think I will bother to try on Windows now ;-)

comment Setting up LaTeX -> DVIPS -> PS2PDF with Shell-Escape (in TeXStudio)
thanks! Well, now I've managed to make it work on Linux, where I have gnuplot and lots of other stuff installed, so my suspicion is that I'm missing something crucial on my Windows and Mac setups: does gnuplot need to be installed (I saw nothing about that in the manual)? I have also been able to add the usr0: in front of the command, and I suspect the problem was a space I might have added between usr and the number. So that was a silly move on my part. Do you know something about gnuplot? I'd say my question has been answered, and thanks again!
