I'm a Computer Science student at the Scuola Superiore of the University of Udine. I've been interested in Computer Science since my third high-school year, and thus I've decided to apply to join one of the Schools of Excellence, and succeeded in this task.

Shouldn't that be inside $s?

comment Biblatex: Inconsistent name-format
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe you should use {Internet} to preserve capitalization instead of {I}nternet since the last one might produce bogus spacing between the I and n.

comment Why does a figure capture a whole page?
@MartinScharrer That doesn't seem to work when the content is an equation or gather or any math environment. What should I do in that case?

In your example shouldn't nounderscore be used as option to syntax?

@egreg I believe I don't need _ as active character. Should I just change it \catcode to 11 after loading syntax?

comment Incorrect page dimensions
Since the difference is so small it might be due to the difference between points and big points...

comment Insert symbols inside verbatim mode LaTeX
You should use \begin{alltt} not \begin{verbatim}. The alltt package does not modify the verbatim environment. It provides a new environment that acts like verbatim but that allows to use maths mode etc. Read the documentation for alltt for other information.

comment Exam Class: how to avoid question going beyond margin
I recommend you read the TeXbook. Knuth more than once says that you should not do: $1, 2, 3, \ldots, n$, but use $1$,~$2$, $3$, \dots,~$n$ instead since the commas do not belong to the actual math content. One of the disadvantages of writing everything inside $ is the one you see. Note also that commas produce less space inside math mode.

comment How can I convert units in LaTeX environment?
@SvendTveskæg I thought you couldn't have temperatures lower than 0 K, but with your suggested transformation we can go down to -2K.

comment How to align limits of double integrals?
@Mico And also between the variables of integration: \,dx\,dy is what you find in the TeXbook all the times.

comment Typeset assigments +=, -= etc nicely?
@tohecz It's usually called "compound assignment", and assignments are usually treated as relations when typesetting since they are the counterpart of definitions in programming languages.

comment How to write a TeX macro that accepts a number or a \count register as argument?
@Werner Right. I'm probably too affected by programming languages where identifiers are single tokens and can contain digits, while \count255 contains two tokens... From now on until I learn I should really first enclose any argument with braces, and afterwards ask my self if they contain a single token or not and eventually remove them. Maybe doing this I'll finally learn.

comment How to write a TeX macro that accepts a number or a \count register as argument?
Damn, I lost hours for this and turns out I forgot one pair of braces. I must mention that the use of \newcount seems required. If I copy-paste your solution and replace \mycount with \count255 inside the \doticks macro I still get a Missing number ... error. Next time I'll make sure to avoid even so-called scratch registers...
