comment “inputenc Error: Unicode char \u8” error while trying to write a degree symbol (invisible character)
@Anusha: In Emacs, if your document is mostly in ASCII (that is, the basic 26 characters of the Latin alphabet in upper- and lower-case, the 10 digits, and a handful of punctuation), then you could search for a non-ASCII character: C-M-s [ -~] (C-M-s searches for a regular expression, and [ -~] looks matches the printable ASCII range). This will match most possible culprits, in addition to tabs and newlines.

comment “inputenc Error: Unicode char \u8” error while trying to write a degree symbol (invisible character)
@Anusha: Not that I can think of off the top of my head – depending on your editor, you could (a) retype the line, (b) step through it with the arrow keys until you hit something strange, (c) turn on some sort of "show invisible characters" setting, or (d) put the file through some sort of shell filter like cat -v or xxd to see where the first wrong character is.

@GaryKlasen: I updated my answer to include a more specific fix. And you should use \begingroup\endgroup instead, if you can; it's cleaner.

comment Reactivating “\clearpage” in LaTeX after turning it off with “\let\clearpage\relax”
@DavidCarlisle: Yes, but it does that even without the \let\clearpage\relax; the problem is with the \clearpage that's implicit in \chapter, so there's an (apparently undesirable) page break in between the table of contents and the first chapter.

comment Reactivating “\clearpage” in LaTeX after turning it off with “\let\clearpage\relax”
@GaryKlasen: I should have realized that, since your \begingroup\endgroup version should have worked. Perhaps some command after the \tableofcontents is the one issuing the \clearpage – have you tried making the group enclose more commands?

comment Can cleveref be made to use the Oxford comma for multiple citations?
@karlkoeller: So it is! I guess great minds think alike; I must have started writing my answer while you were finishing writing yours.
