comment Proper left alignment in math environment
@egreg Sorry, you are right, I confused several documents I made to test it. Yes, &= gives the result I wanted. Technically, this can be the answer.

comment Proper left alignment in math environment
@egreg Oh, I was searching for \DeclareMathOperator, just couldn't remember what the command was! Thanks a lot. Re' &= - sorry, no, that gives ugly spaces on the right of the equals sign and the rest of the equation is aligned to the right... \tolerance and other \usepackage commands are generated by Emacs. I might be able to tweak it, but I don't know yet what it does, so I'll probably let it be for now.

comment Kashida-like Hebrew typesetting
@AlanMunn Yes, that package gave the idea that it might be possible, but it's different in Hebrew. In Arabic there's a special character, which you just add more of it, and you get longer letters, e.g. (normal book كتاب book with a very long "t" كتــــاب) But Hebrew Unicode doesn't seem to have such character (or maybe I'm wrong, and would be happy to find that out), or maybe I need to use some special font that has longer characters.

comment Kashida-like Hebrew typesetting
@AlanMunn mmmm no :) This isn't about layout, it's about elongated letters (Hebrew, like Arabic can be written in such way that emphasized letters have their horizontal bars stretched). This doesn't really have use in modern language, but if you wanted to write something that looks traditional, that would be the way to do it.

comment Is there a way to change the case of digits?
@cfr the Properties in Ocular at least give odd font names, something that looks like BFNCDC+LMRoman10-Regular (and there are about half a dozen of them). I don't think it refers to the part of the "Times New Roman" name, because the actual font doesn't look like Times. This must be the kind of outlines used.

comment Is there a way to change the case of digits?
@cfr would you kindly tell me where in the log file it is? I do usually have it handy open in the other buffer, but I'm not sure what to look at? I'm using latexmk with pdflatex to generate a PDF. I'm not sure about a minimal example... I'm not determined to use memoir or any other template, the minimal example would be then a... string of digits? That seems too trivial to me.

comment Is there a way to change the case of digits?
Oh, thanks. I use memoir package, and the font used in it looks like Bodoni... I don't know where to find that info to be honest. But to my best knowledge those are just different glyphs, so they have their dedicated codepoints in the character table the font implements. So I'd expect not every font to implement them, but would expect the procedure to be the same for all those which do.

@egreg thanks! Even though that didn't actually work for me, but googling it I found that there's \oldstylenums{} which did work.
