You guys are seriously the best.

Check out my blog over on @GitHub!

You can put a

<!-- language: lang-lisp -->

to mark LISP sections of code. (Yay, @giordano!!)


Insanely curious, slightly snarky, and a little absent-minded.

comment Document Blending: An Analysis of the Sex Appeal of Business Instruments
+1 for the sexiest invoice in existence. pstricks has a nice QR code generator. You really should ask one question at a time; this fits better with our Q&A format.

comment Subsection is unevenly alligned
You're very welcome :) to avoid this problem, it helps to use an editor that can collapse environments. TeXmaker comes to mind or, if you're a real pro, Emacs with AUCTeX.

comment Subsection is unevenly alligned
If I'm not mistaken, you have it within the itemize environment. This would cause the indentation.

comment How can I explicitly ask a \label{} command to refer to a given counter?
I think I understand the question, but can you provide a simple use case with expected output (along the lines of a MWE)?

comment Any LaTeX video tutorial recommendations for Mac users?
texdoc lshort, texdoc texbytopic, … these and many more are available via texdoc, which is just sitting on your machine. See this web mirror for more info, but note that documentation is actually the majority size-wise of your distribution.

comment What is the TeX/LaTeX symbol for subgroup (not normal subgroup)?
@JukkaK.Korpela I'd agree that making the distinction doesn't really add to the conversation; the result is the same.

comment What is the TeX/LaTeX symbol for subgroup (not normal subgroup)?
@Travis Re typesetting: MathJAX uses HTML's DOM, so it isn't TeX. It uses syntax very similar to TeX's, but it isn't the same technology. LaTeX is a set of macros on top of TeX, so TeX is still the actual engine behind it all. MathJAX doesn't use this engine, and is mathematics-specific. A quick search of texdoc symbols-a4 does not reveal any such symbol with group in the name, so I suppose my guess per the actual Q is in line with popular opinion.

In any case, you should define such a symbol: \newcommand\subgroup{\lw} or \newcommand\normsubgroup{\leq}.

comment Any LaTeX video tutorial recommendations for Mac users?
To my knowledge, no such serious, good-quality videos exist. Since the domain is about typesetting, you will find a ton of very good written tutorials.

@cfr "I use texlive 2012 on ubuntu 12.04. I wanted my ~/texmf folder invisible, so I edited my texmf.cnf file which is in /usr/local/texlive/2012 directory: TEXMFHOME = ~/.texmf"

comment Box or [ around multiple lines inside align
You should look into some best practices for your actual code, but I would do some googling for tikzmark. That's what immediately comes to mind.

comment What is the TeX/LaTeX symbol for subgroup (not normal subgroup)?
@Travis it's worth noting that mathjax is absolutely not LaTeX or TeX, so it isn't a 'rendering'. TeX isn't just for maths :) That said, you might want to ask that particular question on meta when you can (or meta.math?)

@user25607 in this case, OP wanted to make invisible. This is not the default; read carefully.
