comment Minus signs vanish with listings and breqn - any solutions?
I'm also unable to use the "Another hack" solution.

comment How to manually format \ointctrclockwise?
I wanted both, and they both look ugly ... that's why I always post a pdf version of each blog post.

comment How to manually format \ointctrclockwise?
I haven't forked out the cash required to pay for hosting and control of my own wordpress server and am just using wordpress.com, which doesn't allow changes to the default plugins. I suppose that if I did that, I'd be able to add extra packages, including my own, and could eliminate this problem directly.

comment How to manually format \ointctrclockwise?
thanks, \mathop{\rlap{\ensuremath{\mkern3.5mu\circlearrowright}}\int} appears to work (although the \int is very short).

Is there a way to do this without the embedded $ markers? Those end the latex context in wordpress.

comment How to manually format \ointctrclockwise?
I don't think it does. Look for example in: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stokes'_theorem which uses the rather ambiguous \oint in places that an orientation is implied.

No, the latex support is limited to inline $ latex ... $ markup.

comment Where do I place my own .sty files, to make them available to all my .tex files?
Would you really be using personal .sty files in so many ad-hoc locations? Even so, there isn't anything that would prevent such a method from being used even from many locations (since the makefiles in each location can be trivial, including just an include of the make rules).

comment Would like a mdframed environment style with framed title box inset above without fill
Very nice, that looks better.

comment Would like a mdframed environment style with framed title box inset above without fill
thanks. btw. Looks like the first \node line should be: \node[anchor=east,rectangle,draw=blue!20,fill=white] (ie. still want a box for an unnamed, but still numbered begin/end block).

comment hf-tikz doesn't box around equation
If I understand what you are doing properly, this provides a mechanism for making classes of offsets for various uses, which should make it easier if you want to manually pick your box sizes, but still isn't a mechanism for automatically sizing the boxes. Correct?

comment hf-tikz doesn't box around equation
Your solution 3 works very nicely. I tried it on the notes I'm taking for statistical mechanics. That was 34 different boxes scattered on 184 different pages. All are sized appropriately, and look great.

comment hf-tikz doesn't box around equation
How are the various arguments passed to your \tikzmarkin functions. For example in your solution 3, the equation content is #5. If, for example, I wanted to pass 'rounded corners' as your parameter #1, how would that be done? Or does #1 already have a value (what and from where?)

comment hf-tikz doesn't box around equation
yes, the manual says to add stuff like: (0.1,-0.4)(-0.1,0.5) to specify the box boundaries. Makes it fairly useless unless you want to do a lot of error prone and unmaintainable boundary adjustment (for example in a larger document with 38 boxed equations).

comment TikZ based \boxed construct is causing pdflatex to hang
Sorry, made a MWE that is copyable. I use this typically with equation and dmath environments. I'll take a look at the hf-tikz package.

comment Cleveref and breqn packages don't play nice together
This doesn't work for me. The dmath displays as equation, but the counters aren't right. Your other answer appears to be required.

Inside the equation environment was what I was thinking of... which looks like what you did below.

Is there supposed to be two documents in your answer above?

I've now also added the MWE for the arrows stuff I liked (which after removing the beamer specific stuff doesn't look so bad). I'm still not sure how it could be done all within an equation enviornment. Perhaps that's the first question to answer.

comment labelling with arrows in an automated way
MWE including the tikz label commands above, or a copy of the beamer arrows page example (which appears to be standalone, but not minimal) that I'm wondering how to automate? If the first, I've now provided that in an edit, and updated the image to show both a "nice" looking example and the original image that was cluttered by the labels.
