comment Putting normal letters in between Greek ones
It’s ISO 80000-2 (and IEC 80000-2) now, available from usual ISO document distributors. And as I wrote, though mathematicians have their own habits, in physics the standard is generally followed, and the formula here is clearly a physics formula.

comment Putting normal letters in between Greek ones
As an aside, π should be written in upright style, using e.g. \piup from txfonts package, instead of \pi. (By standards, symbols of mathematical constants are written in upright style, not italic, and this is generally applied in physics, though very often violated in mathematics.)

comment WriteLatex utf-8 ģ symbol problem
The capital letter produced does not a have a cedilla but a comma. But G with cedilla, Ģ, was not the problem here: it can be written as \unichar{"0122} or inserted as such when utf8 is enabled.

comment WriteLatex utf-8 ģ symbol problem
Doesn’t \'{g} produce g with acute accent? So that would be a wrong character if you want g with cedilla.

comment Who do I have to ask, if I need a \mathsfup{\Theta} (missing unicode character)?
@LaRiFaRi, sorry for missing `, added it now. I didn’t use any extra packages. What happens when you try $\sf{\Theta}$`?

comment switch greek lowercase for times.sty to upright?
Why do you want to mimic incorrect rendering? And it’s not web browsers that are the culprit, it’s incorrectly coded HTML documents. (And whether a character in a regular typeface looks fatty depends on the font, on the rendering engine, and the eye of the beholder.)

comment Multiple diacritics on one character
The problem looks well-defined to me; it is reproducible simply by wrapping documentclass{article}\begin{document} and \end{document} around the code posted. The character does not show well here in SO either, since web browsers are not good at using multiple diacritics.

comment Symbol for logical equivelence
The standard symbol for logical equivalence is “⇔”. Are you sure you are looking for a different symbol (apparently, one that has not even been coded as a character in Unicode)?

comment HTML email typeset equations as HTML elements, not images?
How does the question relate to TeX? (BTW, the answer is “No, Unicode, HTML, and CSS are lousy tools for equations that require any serious two-dimensionality, and the limitations of email clients make the situation even lousier.”)
