comment TeXShop auto-deletion of certain groups of pasted in characters
And if you're worried about extra braces (like egreg), then you can tweak the tdl file to eliminate them. But I wouldn't recommend it.

comment Mathtype Euclid Font in Latex
I'm surprised that you think the Euclid font is so different from Computer Modern. They seem very similar, to me. What are the big differences, in you view?

> I don't use Microsoft products much. Then it's odd that you make comments about their deficiencies. Your ideas about Word APIs, available languages, and costs are all incorrect.

comment Alleged Missing Characters in Latin Modern Math
So, I suppose that the characters were in the wrong "slots" in the old version of the font (i.e. they were not in the places where fontspec or unicode-math was expecting to find them).

That was easy. Thanks very much. Fixed.

comment Use of Script-size and Script-script-size glyphs
I don't understand this stuff at all, so I don't know if it's an error or not. I somewhat like it, actually. I'll report it as a bug if that's the consensus. Let's wait a while, first, though.

comment LaTeX vs Word; improvements of LaTeX over the years
@UlrikeFischer -- Yes, compiling code that has errors (because it's not yet complete) is much harder than compiling complete correct programs. But it's not impossible. Presumably the current TeX engine would need to be significantly rewritten, though, and I don't see any way to get this work funded.

comment LaTeX vs Word; improvements of LaTeX over the years
@percusse: Word's ability to do improved math layout is obviously dependent on the math tables in OpenType fonts. Cambrian has these tables; Latin Modern Math doesn't; not sure about XITS.

@barbarabeeton. I was talking about math layout in my #3. I added clarification. Agree that typing is faster than mousing if you know exactly what to type and you don't make any mistakes. But this isn't a LaTeX advantage, because the Office 2007 equation editor and MathType both allow mouse-less operation, too.

@CarlWitthoft -- I'm not talking about field codes; I'm talking about the built-in equation editor that was introduced in Word 2007. The codes look a lot like TeX. For example, to get the quadratic formula, you just type: x = (-b \pm \sqrt(b^2-4ac))/2a. The mouse is not required, but it can be used if it helps.
