Thanks! I am too used programming in conventional languages. It all makes sense now!

comment Remove all Russian symbols from a PDF under Windows
Even if you succeed, you will have lots of punctuation left over. Removing punctuation will probably break formulas.

comment Poor man's double acute accent
Thanks a lot! Works like a charm! I really should reread the relevant part of TeXbook.

comment Include a line break in algorithmic while maintaining indentation
This is much better, thanks! One problem is when applying it to \For loop. It ends with "do". So, it seems that I one needs to define another version of \For (without a do), and then insert \textbf{do}. Similarly for \While. Is there a way to avoid these problems?

comment Parsing some buzzwords in the Latex document and replacing them by link possible?
Perhaps TeX is not the right tool. How about sed/awk?

comment Include a line break in algorithmic while maintaining indentation
I have the same problem, and the solution by Werner is too cumbersome to use. So, I start a bounty.

comment BibTeX: citing both translation and the original
I do not need to include the name of the translator, but the whole citation for the translation (it appeared a couple years later, in a different place, etc)

comment Creating fillable PDFs
It is possible to save the data with Reader for some forms. An example is the US Tax form at irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1040.pdf

comment Quickly add text to existing pdf files / fill forms
I like xournal, it does what I need. @Willie: You were not sufficiently convincing. It is installed only on your machine.

comment LaTeX for netbook OSes
In my experience writing on netbook is much slower than on a normal computer: the keyboard is smaller, the screen is slower, the processor is weaker. So, unless you can postpone writing until you are at the office, it is probably better to avoid doing it on a netbook.

comment Drawing 3d diagrams
Thanks, a lot. Since I already know TikZ, learning tikz-3dplot would be relatively easy.

@Andrew: Your example of "smooth map" at texample.net is really cool!

comment Drawing 3d diagrams
@Andrew: I mean a sequence of line segments so that beginning of one is joined to the end of the other. Alternatively: a sequence of points joined by line segments

comment Drawing 3d diagrams
Thanks. I do know of TikZ, and do use it occasionally. However, it is a 2D package: it cannot render surfaces other than balls, one needs to calcule all the projections by hand, etc.
