comment Itemize - set default option
@T.Verron Simple things require a rather complicated syntax. With paralist you just say what your first item should look like and the package does the rest for you. It has its limits but you don't get all the complexity of being able to define your lists any way you want either.

comment Why am I receiving a undefined-control-sequence error when compiling this custom letter class?
@kahen You also shouldn't use ~ just to get rid of nonfrenchspacing (which is outdated anyway, so just switch it off for each and every document where the publisher doesn't force you to use it). There's \ for that. ~ prohibits line breaks.

Oh so you problem is not the bibliography but the main text?

comment How to hyphenate a reference that has a lastname with a hyphen?
I set my bibliography \RaggedRight because I basically gave up on decent justification with all those long URLs in paragraphs I couldn't change. I don't think it looks bad. Bibliographies look kinda "ragged" anyway. Everything looks better than \sloppy. Another possibility would be to use \small for your whole bibliography. People are used to this because it's a common trick to cheat more space into a paper and it gives TeX and microtype more degrees of freedom to squeeze long stuff into one line.

comment Renaming section levels?
Not the perfect solution for existing documents but when you next time start a new project and know this might become an issue, consider using relative sectioning: stackoverflow.com/questions/2066119/…

comment How to compare two dvi files?
Any special reason you want to work on the dvi file directly and not convert them to ps and then to pdf so that you can employ tools like diffpdf or pdftotext, depending on whether you're interested in the text content or the layout?

comment White space between columns using \rowcolor{somecolor}
It's still a legitimate question though IMHO because oftentimes documents are produced for screen reading and you can't rely on people using a certain PDF viewer and not another.

comment True `macros' in (La)TeX
Your problem doesn't seem to be the macro but the \left and \right. I couldn't reproduce your problem unless I used exactly your example which I thought was just sloppy code.

comment Obfuscation of @ and . in e-mail addresses
@acr Well, this works for me stackoverflow.com/a/10290006/1050373 but if it doesn't for you, try stackoverflow.com/a/4502030/1050373. You can then convert the svg back to pdf using inkscape. It's complicated but for two characters it should be doable and for more you can automate it using a makefile or a shell script since both tools provide a command line interface. If nothing works, I'm out of ideas and can only suggest posting a new question on stackoverflow or graphicdesign.SE, sorry :/

comment Using Liberation font with pdflatex (no XeLaTeX/LuaLaTeX)
You cannot use OpenType fonts natively unless you use XeTeX or LuaTeX (it's one of the main features of these systems actually) so yes, converting the font like in the link you found is actually the only possibility.
