comment (Semantically) correct string concatenation symbol?
I'll accept your answer, but it would be nice if you could also suggest one concrete choice of symbol to use. @egreg and @moose has already suggested several different options in their comments (\mathbin{\|}, \textdoublepipe and \shortparallel). Hence which one of these "should" one prefer?

@moose That makes it even more confusing! I already had trouble choosing among two options :-D Which one is the best of those?

comment Not getting xkeyval to work (as intended) for a simple custom command
Ok, thanks for your patience. I'm accepting your answer since it works, but unfortunately I don't really understand it at all. It's just so confusing that I don't see how this usage corresponds to the way it appears we are supposed to use this package in the documentation.

comment Not getting xkeyval to work (as intended) for a simple custom command
While the cmdkey example appeared cleaner, how do I specify functions of the input with it? I.e. if I want to take in the value of foo (#1) and make it bold (say). And what do you mean by called? I'm sorry for being so dense, but it seems that there is something really fundamental I'm not getting here...

comment Not getting xkeyval to work (as intended) for a simple custom command
Thanks for your help. However, I'm now even more confused. It appears that I simply don't understand how this package is even supposed to be used. In particular, why is not the method which is specified in the documentation of xkeyval (Sec 3.1) not working? And what does toks even mean? Is it just arbitrary? And why do I have to specify even more \def's? I thought that was supposed to be handled by the \define@key command? And why do I have to specify default values with an extra call to \setkeys when you are supposed to supply that in \define@key?

comment Vertically centered tilde with \raisebox includes space when copying from pdf
@StevenB.Segletes I'm also on Windows :) And for me the space is still added when I copy to any text editor. However, I noticed that what's added depends on the PDF reader I'm copying from. Using SumatraPDF I get an extra space, while on FoxitPDF I get a newline! Strange...

@karlkoeller Yes I also thought about that, but it doesn't seem like TexMaker supports that :(
