comment How to use shading in TikZ when rotating the picture?
Note that if you do this, you almost certainly want to still have shading angle=90 in the rotated block; as it stands, the code tries to rotate the shading 30° twice, and that gives the shading the odd "twisted" look it has in the picture.

comment Cool Text Highlighting in LaTeX
@Stefan: Thank you! I have some thoughts (indeed, there are some helpful tips on this very site), but I'd have to sink my teeth back into the code to test, extend, etc., which I don't expect to have time to do soon (fellowship/graduate school applications, midterms, etc.). I'll try to update this answer when I can, though.

comment Short names for macros
@Jukka: Niel's answer will work with any character—just replace " with whatever you want. (Except @, which will break at \makeatother.) You might want to do something like \newcommand\quote{"} first, though, if you use a character you need to type sometimes.
