comment Symbol for a laboratory flask
Thanks for the suggestion. It is a shame that this package seems not to be in the comprehensive symbols list, although maybe that's because of the XeLaTeX restriction.

comment Symbol for a laboratory flask
That's interesting but seems to be a lot more complicated and flexible than I require.

comment Ending a tikzpicture environment in conditional causes “Missing } inserted”
I went about it another way by constructing a list of lists instead of just a single-level list.

comment Parsing question: Do curly braces affect LaTeX compilation time?
I would guess the answer is "yes they do, but not by any appreciable amount". One way to test would be using the PGF benchmarking library.

comment I need some help debugging this LaTeX macro - TeX “skips past” a bunch of code?
I'm not sure whether to delete this now, or post an answer, or what. I guess it might help someone else who stumbles on it while stuck on a similar problem.

comment I need some help debugging this LaTeX macro - TeX “skips past” a bunch of code?
Indeed @UlrikeFischer, I had just found the root cause and had come here to add it. There is an \else on line 980 which should have been a \fi. I am not sure why the \message on line 969 doesn't work, though, as far as I can see it ought to.
