comment How can I type in Devnagari font using LaTeX?
Some people actually need to type the transliteration -- it's used by western Sanskrit scholars, for example.

comment Is it possible to compile asymptote(.asy) file without displaying the figure
It's strange that even with -noV and with all those options, asymptote still pops up a window (that closes almost immediately). That's annoying when your Makefile calls asymptote 30 times, for example! (30 windows popping up, one each three or five seconds -- that means I have to stop working).

comment Asymptote generates different output whether running in interactive mode or from pdflatex
Well, not using inline seems to mess up the document somehow (3d images are included over the text, as if no space was reserved for them)... But I've found that if I use \usepackage[inline,attach]{asymptote} with \usepackage[dvips]{attachfile2}, and settings.embed=true in my asydef, it works!

comment Asymptote generates different output whether running in interactive mode or from pdflatex
Thank you!!! settings.outformat makes no difference, but remving the inline option fixes the problem. I suppose, then, that this is a bug in asymptote (or more precisely, in its interface with LaTeX), right?

comment Asymptote takes too long to render images
Thank you!!! It now compiles instantly! 8-) Would you mind posting your comment as answer?

comment plot 3d graphs of functions defined implicitly
Yes -- I have seen the question about implicit functions with pgfplots, but that's for 2d only. Implicit functions of two variables (that is, defined using three variables) are a bit trickier. So far I have been parameterizing them (I tell Maxima to solve the equation for z, then use the result), but that's not a perfect solution...)

comment plot 3d graphs of functions defined implicitly
Well, it's not that there is a function that doesn't work, but rather that there doesn't seem to be any package that will plot functions defined implicitly. I'll add one example function to the description.

comment How to add decorations to tikz-qtree branches (for example, create AND-branches and OR-branches)?
One last observation: that code works when the size of the nodes above and below the arc are the same. If they're different, then their center will be at different places, and the arc will be longer at one of its sides. (I've made the nodes the same size, so I'm OK with it)

this is great -- exactly what I needed, thank you!

comment How to add decorations to tikz-qtree branches (for example, create AND-branches and OR-branches)?
Thanks! But I'd like something that would go across all branches from a node (if a node has three or five children, then putting a label as you showed may not look nice -- an arc going through the branches would be great)

comment todonotes and verbatim
If all you need is monospaced font, you may use \ttfamily instead of \verb.

comment Fine-tuning placement of arrows inside TikZ nodes
Thank you! And I can further align the start of arrows with the longest line by using a 2x2 matrix of nodes, with an empty node after each text node. Great!

comment Problem with the nomenclature?
I don't use Windows, but certainly there must be a way to compile the PDF file, then run makeindex, and then compile again. Do you use TeXnicCenter? If you do you could follow Mike Renfro's instructions (see the comment on your post, he mentioned you could check this: tex.stackexchange.com/a/14704/3345)

Thanks a lot, really! Now it all works as I intended.
