comment Side effects of changing blackboard bold font with \setmathfont
Thanks all -- I've been away from my computer and your investigation helps a lot! @egreg Yes, range processing is a big one on my todo list. Not sure if regression or always broken....

Strange... I can't predict what could be causing this. Unfortunately I probably can't investigate in the near future, apologies. Will attempt over the weekend. Can you file a bug on GitHub please?

comment Using the Google Noto fonts with fontspec
@zoqaeski — don't use latexmk then. Just run xelatex on the document and see what happens. It sounds like latexmk is mis-interpreting your file for some reason.

comment Equation and italics
I recommend looking at a getting started guide to LaTeX. I don't know where to begin explaining, but the correct code is \[ \{x \mid A'x=b'\} \] or similar.

comment Occasionally wrong page numbers for index entries
The howto of course :) I should have been more clear. indexing is one of the less well documented areas of LaTeX I think, great to see such a comprehensive resource. Perhaps TUGboat would be interested in publishing it :)

comment visible hyphen char, why?
Actually I'm confused. If the engine isn't doing anything to it, shouldn't it display the glyph for U+00AD, which presumably isn't a copy of the hyphen in the font? Or is it, and xetex is set up to just ignore the char?

comment visible hyphen char, why?
Thanks for confirming whether the XeTeX behaviour was sensible. I wonder if this would be a sensible char to special case for being active… (along with no-break-space, etc.)

comment Callback to be run at the end of the job
There's no reasonable way to process the dvi files created by LuaTeX, right? I'm not sure if the output-agnostic requirement is all that necessary. But not running in draft mode is more likely a feature not a bug for that, so doesn't help in this case :)

comment How to get subs/sups for figures but not letters?
Of course. I wrote it in my answer already: \fakesuperscript. There's an unfortunate typo in the documentation, though. The first sentence of section 2 should read "The OLD commands are defined in starred form (e.g., \textsubscript*) for cases where the new commands are not appropriate.".

comment Pgfplots and ClassicThesis: two plots side-by-side
@Alenanno — Oh sure, you could cram them in. But then it looks more crammed in :) The example I chose is for a particular sparse plot as well. As with many decision in typography, there's no definite wrong or wrong — just competing design decision.
