comment Using LaTeX to solve math problems in LaTeX more efficiently than with only paper
@Nasser, yes it can be touchy (and some stuff has to be done differently when used), and I'd really like better error reporting when it is used, but I still find it worthwhile.

comment arrays of counters for tikz nodenumbers?
touching just my .tex file and re executing make didn't seem to be enough. I cleaned out all the generated latex files (.aux .bbl .blg .log .pdf .synctex.gz) and then your modification works. One of these must have been caching something generated the old way.

I tried the hyphens you suggested, and the boxes all got positioned at the bottom. underscores also didn't work. I've just reverted to your original, which works fine for how I'm using it.

That's all I've used in my current document. I was really just wondering.

Can the node names have any delimeters between the concatenated numbers: #2\theMyBoxCounter. There's some cases where they could theoretically be ambiguous: 1 13 -> 113; 11 3 -> 113 (if you got really unlucky)

I'd like a solution that I can understand, or at least understand how to use, without having to care about the tex implementation details when I am writing the content.

I have no requirement to override the original macro. Having copy and pasted the tikzmark function from the linked answer, I didn't actually know that I was overriding anything.

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.

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).

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.
