comment Is there a way to make standard LaTex PDF output look good *on screen* as well
+1 (huge difference) for \usepackage{lmodern} when rendered in Adobe Reader in my Windows environment. Without that, in my pdfTeX (TeXStudio software) environment, I was getting the LaTeX modern font embedded into PDF as Type 3 Custom fonts, e.g., F18; Type: Type 3; Encoding: Custom; Actual Font: F18; Actual Font Type: Type 3. With your options, I now get Type 1 embedded fonts, e.g., LMMono12-Regular; Type: Type 1; Encoding Custom. They render much nicer in Adobe Reader X. The other fonts were rendered very "thin" and wash out. Even zoomed reading was taxing due to lack of robustness.

comment \emph or \textit
Is this analogous to the differences between <em> and <i> tags in HTML? For example...

comment Style-independent way in BibTeX to cite a web page as a source
@JosephWright Thanks again. I only use (tolerate!) LaTeX because of the publications that require it... The path of least resistance is to keep hacking my @misc entries.

comment Style-independent way in BibTeX to cite a web page as a source
@JosephWright Thanks. biblatex might be an option, although I'm not sure what it entails when 1) using TeXworks and 2) writing papers for conferences/journals that impose their own tex formats.

comment How can I use BibTeX to cite a web page?
+1 for the way to include the access date (very important!). There's an alternative way that uses howpublished to include the \url{} and [Acccessed: 30 September 2009], but that might not be style-independent. It's a little frustrating that BibTeX didn't officially keep up with web pages as an entry.

comment LaTeX Editors/IDEs
+1 for non-geek friendliness of TeXworks, which is sort of a paradox with LaTeX. I've used TeXworks to submit papers to IEEE conferences with success.
