comment How can I adjust the total page count variable?
@cfr Yes, I was writing the number on every page as shown by the et cetera in my original question: "such that the students read Side 1 of 6 etc. in the footer". I would have marked yours correct, but it does not address how one might change the page count variable. Nonetheless, your contribution was great!

comment How can I adjust the total page count variable?
@cfr I mean that adding \pageref all over the place is not what I had in mind. This is what I mean by "hardcoded"—writing extra code on every page. Consider an exam with 100 questions taking up many pages. Your method would require much more work than the solution provided by Werner, for example. I knew some redefinition of the numpages would be best, but my skills in this area are limited. This way, the body of my document remains untouched, yet my goal achieved! Thanks, both of you!

+1 Thanks for your effort, but I am not looking for a solution which hardcodes page numbers.

comment LaTeX in Word/Office 2011?
It does not, as Joseph Wright, answered. However, I wrote this AppleScript for Word in Office 2011, which gives you a highly customizable way of converting DOC and DOCX to unicode LaTeX (XeLaTeX) if you make use of styles. See this AppleScript: texifyWord

Unicode characters work fine when using XeLaTeX + the fontspec package.

comment newcommand containing tikz node
I would really like to see a solution with \Tree [.\A{1} \A{2} \A{3} ] as the syntax for the actual tree. This would be extremely useful for linguistics.

comment How to zoom a portion of TiKZ picture?
I just wanted to add here that this code does not work when compiled with XeLaTeX (in case anybody is hitting their head on a desk). The picture shows up fine, but the spy zoom is blank. A solution has not yet been provided: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/33260/…

comment TikZ: Bend text so that it follows a line
Is there any way to put a fill on the "text along path" text? e.g. when using this over an image, it would make the text stand out better. I could not get the usual fill=white function to work.

comment Create association lines between characters
@Sverre Perhaps changing the theme to [theme=simple] would help. The lines would still not be straight as you requested, rather curved. I will consider how to accomplish this...
