comment How to draw the Stack Overflow icon with TikZ?
Nice question! I got this idea of \usetikzlibrary{arrows}\tikz\draw[loosely dashed,[-,line width=1em] (0,0) to[out=90,in=180] (1,1.5);, but couldn't quite get it to work. Yet, anyway.

comment TeX: reasons to start tokens using backslash
One obvious reason is that you are typesetting general text, so keywords such as "if" appearing in the text would need to be escaped. The operative word being "escape", for which the backslash is common.

comment Text turned into squares
So if you open the file in another text editor, like notepad, it doesn't show the rectangles? Or is it only the dvi which shows them?

comment Text turned into squares
Could it be that TeXstudio is using a font which doesn't include any of the glyphs in the alphabet(s) you're using?

comment How to draw a box around something with the dimensions of something else?
@egreg Knuth's answer in the TUGboat regarding \mathchoice is kinda puzzling to me; first the earlier quote: "\mathchoice is somewhat expensive in terms of time and space, and you should use it only when you’re willing to pay the price." And his answer: "And well, I guess that quote implies my answer. For I was clearly willing to pay the price in 1982, so I’m certainly willing to pay zero today!". What does the "zero today" mean, either of you know?
