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...

comment How to manage a central bibtex file which plays nice with (TexMaker's) auto-complete?
@karlkoeller Yes I also thought about that, but it doesn't seem like TexMaker supports that :(

comment Strange indent using tabular in titlingpage
Never mind! I messed up, sorry. I edited the wrong document, therefore I didn't see the changes. Your suggestion worked indeed :) Thanks!

comment Strange indent using tabular in titlingpage
I tried removing that as well :) Look at the first tabular environment in my example, it doesn't contain a @{}. And the (small) indent still remains when I use \noindent

I've already tried that. It mitigates the problem somewhat, but a small indent still remains.

comment How to fully left justify text in algorithmicx when not using line numbers
Thanks for your dedication, it's much appreciated. Although it just occurred to me that it's not really the formatting of algorithmicx I really depend on here! All I need is actually just the algorithm environment. I can just use normal text inside that environment of course, not using algorithmicx at all! I'm so stupid! :( sorry for wasting your time.

comment How to fully left justify text in algorithmicx when not using line numbers
Argh, tried it out now, but unfortunately there's a small problem: For long sentences that wrap to the next line (and any other sentence following this within the same LState) the part of the sentence which is wrapped to the next line is indented and not left justified. How may I fix this?

comment How to fully left justify text in algorithmicx when not using line numbers
Thanks for the suggestion. The enumerate part was not really my main focus, i.e. I just added it for this example. See also my comment to @Werner's answer.

comment How to fully left justify text in algorithmicx when not using line numbers
Thanks for the suggestion, this was just what I was looking for. W.r.t to the enumerate part: that was just something I added for the sake of this example and was not really meant to be of any significant importance for my question. So the point of using the algorithm env. is not for the sake of formatting, but because I actually need to present something as an algorithm (with numbers, captions etc..). Do you have a better suggestion for what I might use?
