comment How to put Verbatim inside \multicolumn in tabular?
Thanks, will try your solution, but I am really confused about what you said here You cannot include verbatim environment inside table, as I have been using Verbatim inside Tabular for long time now with no problems? The first example I show above has Verbatim inside table as you can see and it works. So I am not sure I get what you mean by this now.

comment how to put Verbatim inside minipage that has fbox around it? “Paragraph ended before \FV@BeginScanning was complete. }”
@DavidCarlisle thanks for the link. The answer by Bruno Le Floch there had the solution. It was to use \cprotect\fbox and now it works. So I will close this as duplicate then. Thanks again.

comment Are there any decorative, TeX-themed posters?
how was the above poster made? I am sure this can be done by an expert in tikz or pstricks (do not look at me)

comment why \everymath{\scriptsize} works with matrix environment only?
@barbarabeeton thanks! your method works and is much better and no warnings. But the question remains, as to why it worked for matrix above? I guess at this point, it is not really important for me to know why, since I'll just use your method and it works for both cases. But may be some one can find the reason interesting.

comment debugging tikz: how assign each separate tikz object to a variable and then add them to a picture?
@DavidCarlisle ok, ok, I am all confused by all these syntaxes, that is why I asked. Will change it to use \newcommand, but still get an syntax error :) thanks

comment How to automatically obtain the center of the circle used to draw the arc in TikZ?
Arcs are graphics objects, Ok, but the common understanding or arc is that it is segment of circle or ellipse. It looks like tikz uses a more advanced definition of arc being segment of any general "curve". Thanks for your answer.

comment How to automatically obtain the center of the circle used to draw the arc in TikZ?
@DavidCarlisle thanks for the link. But for question (1), how to obtain the center coordinates from Tikz, it is not the same question? but for (2), it seems to have what I want, yes.

comment How to find location of position of nodes in TikZ graph automatically to use?
great! and thanks for adding the scope construct, this is much better than having to rotate each object one by one. Tikz is looking really nice. Using named coordinates will make it much easier to make much more complex drawings now.

comment Why is LaTeX so complicated?
I would use context, but tex4ht does not work with it. Which means Latex written in context can no longer be converted to html using tex4ht. This is none starter for many who like to convert Latex to HTML.

comment Why is LaTeX so complicated?
You heard the saying that Democracy is not perfect but it is the best political system available? Well the same for Latex, it is not perfect, but it is the best typesetting system we have. If you can do better, please go ahead. (just make sure your system has tex4ht in it also :)

comment Most useful/important (La)TeX commands/environments
it is conditional to allow one to run some code in same latex file in pdflatex mode vs. tex4ht mode. examples I use it all the time, since my latex file has to compile both in pdf mode and tex4ht mode.

+1, but I think you missed \ifdefined\HCode...\fi in your list. I use this more than anything else myself.

comment why quotes " in Verbatime become tilde when adding \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} with tex4ht?
thanks. I just entered this in the tex4ht bug database, and few other issues I posted here before on tex4ht, so they get tracked.

comment How to make a local TOC that only shows levels below where it is inserted?
I need a simple solution that I can understand. Not asking for anything fancy. All solutions posted seems to be too complicated for some reason. May be it is the nature of Latex.
