comment getnonfreefonts problem with map files
@egreg: why isn't installing things in TEXMFHOME recommended? Assuming one doesn't want system-wide installation.

comment How can I change the layout of a page (plain TeX)?
You can probably use \pdfpagewidth=<dimen>/\pdfpageheight=<dimen> with pdfTeX/XeTeX at least.

comment How to type an old style greek phrase in text mode?
"switch to XeLaTeX and deal with encoding issues"; Using UTF-8 input encoding, there is absolutely nothing to "deal with" as shown in Thérèses answer.

comment Is it possible to typeset the Ge'ez alphabet in LaTeX?
@Mico, I have no ill will here, but it is interesting to note how different people read the "mood" behind written text. I personally do strongly agree with the second point; user having to use some cryptic ASCII representation of his/her script somehow rubs me the wrong way. And sure, it might have been the only way to get the job done 18 years ago. But now we do have the correct tools for this (correct in the sense of user input), which I feel we, as a community, are not promoting enough. Christian, please don't take this the wrong way, I don't mean to diminish your answer.

comment Which inputenc for these Latvian letters?
@Masi: I guess egreg didn't see your question because you misspelled his handle, but I think what he meant is that the line: \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} would assume PDFLaTeX because you wouldn't use it with (Lua/Xe)LaTeX. Although, to know that already requires some amount of expertise. I think it would be helpful to draw some kind of diagram regarding different engine choices and link it to our help pages.

comment How not to extract text when using \includesvg?
I found: "Only PDFLaTeX supports importing a single page of a graphics file, so only PDF backend gets interleaved text/graphics". So maybe try with EPS?

comment How not to extract text when using \includesvg?
What do you mean by "text"? Does the svg have a <text> element? Or a <foreignObject> with a text element? Or do you perhaps mean the svg file itself? svg files are made of text...

@Masi: Jūs esat laipni. (I hope Google translate did that correctly). But yes, I assumed your text would've been in Latvian, but I see you already found out how to change that :)
