@Mico Me neither, but here you have it.

@Mico I can reproduce the bug with TeX Live 2015 on Linux and the fonts from Windows 8. Cambria version 6.82 and Consolas version 5.34, both from 2013. Maybe your fonts are too old?

comment Exercise 17.21 of Knuth’s TeXbook: a (known) error?
@GustavoMezzetti I think your second addition is correct: Knuth simply wrote these remarks with a { of category 12 in mind. That’s what you can read between the lines in the relevant place of plain.tex too (“N.B. { and } should NOT get delcodes; otherwise parameter grouping fails!”). To know why, well, you’ll have to ask him :-) If he remember ...

@ChristianHupfer I agree with you on that, but clearly it was not the case here.

comment Getting started with LuaTeX and ConTeXt
"Engine" is the usual word we use for that category of programs, yes. See seanallred.com/tex/2015/05/25/tex-terminology.html for example

comment What software can be used to publish an internal technical journal for my company?
@barbarabeeton The OP states it's about an internal journal for one company; it seems to me that deciding on a common structure and editing the final result as one TeX file would be possible. It may be hard to stay on this course as the company grows or external contributors are added, but I'd still give it a try.

comment “Missing \begin{document}” after DeclareUnicodeCharacter
I agree with @Sverre; it is not necessary to "document" every possible mistake as it can be distracting. For a tiny error like that, a useful answer would provide some explanation.

comment Choosing TeX engine for novel — just how unstable is LuaTeX?
@Mico You’re welcome. I would like to stress that it really depends on the language; for some languages LuaLaTeX is just a no-go, and there’s no much Polyglossia can do about that because it depends on lower-level support from the engine and core LaTeX packages.

comment Choosing TeX engine for novel — just how unstable is LuaTeX?
@Mico Polyglossia's LuaLaTeX support has essentially not changed since I first added it 3 years ago. The core part of the code is rather simple and I've had rather few bug reports, hence I think the code can be considered mature. That said, support for some languages is incomplete, or lacking altogether, depending on how well fontspec handles the underlying script. It's hard to be more precise in 600 characters, we could take that to the chat, or, better yet, it could be made into a question.
