comment fontspec – sans-serif as main font?
I have toyed in the past with renaming \setsansfont to \setaltfont (or similar) but never got around to it. \setromanfont became \setmainfont many many years ago because ‘roman’ isn't a good descriptor when you're writing Greek, e.g. Perhaps \setseriffont would have been a better idea, but I didn't think of it at the time :)

comment Why spaces are ignored even in textual arguments within \ExplSyntaxOn… \ExplSyntaxOff?
@JosephWright — I don't remember it being not a good idea — since \msg_new is only really used in an \outer-like context being able to write the message without ~ did save some effort. But it was inconsistent with everything else in expl3, so there was a good argument for dropping that feature.

comment Can't get unicode symbols in math mode
Now that this question is resolved, could you adjust the title of this question to be more specific please? It won't archive well in its current form.

comment Small Caps and Bold Face
I can't find the TUG article that discusses it explicitly (I thought there was one in the last few years), but Cm-Super, I believe, is generated more automatically; in particular, I seem to recall that its auto tracing method produced outlines that are more complex than they need to be (i.e., fonts are larger) but also not as representative of the original CM bitmaps.

comment Adding styling to LaTeX produced by MATLAB
@Jubobs Definitely! I have a love/hate relationship with the Matlab programming language. Since I was thinking about this yesterday, I noticed that you can have a spurious comma for concatenating using square brackets ['x',...'y',...'z',...] … which I don't understand.

comment Adding styling to LaTeX produced by MATLAB
@Jukobs — good answer! Regarding brace style, I've been using this sort of form for years and it still seems to work in a trial version of 2014b I have installed. So I'm a bit confused. Note there's no comma before the final ... ?

comment XeLaTeX & fontspec can not use Seravek's small caps
Are you using a fully up-to-date (using TeX Live Manager) installation of MacTeX 2014? The log file indicates you may not be, off the top of my head. I'm not saying that fontspec is blameless here, but would be good to ensure you're checking with the latest version of the code.
