Brilliant! it works fantastically! thank you so much! I take your comment on the italic shape, will keep on the modern code from now on. :) it is a bit difficult to mark which is the correct answer since each answered a part of the question.

comment Consistent cover design regardless of inner pages
@YiannisLazarides it seems to be an automatic thing, if that is the case, it is not a big deal. I was worrying that it might related to certain parameters which may exasperate in later days. however, still would like to fix it though....

@YiannisLazarides you are right! I have to introduce descenders into the title in order to replicate this!

comment In fancyhdr, ensure every letters in chapter/title names are in lowercase
@egreg gave it a go, it still produced the output of "This is Mixed Cases" rather than the desirable "this is mixed cases". I copied the code exactly.

@Werner I tried \fancyhead[OC]{\rmfamily \bf \small \nouppercase \MakeTextLowercase{\leftmark}} (with or without \nouppercase) It produced error. citing too many }. I am with KOMA Script, Book Class. textcase loaded.

comment To kern double em-dashes
@tohecz The -0.4em didn't work, whatever I modified the numbers, it doesn't seem to do anything. As regards to your second point of ------, not sure where to put it. In the script it is 6 hyphens... Can you illustrate it clearly? Thank you!

comment To kern double em-dashes
Thanks YL, it works brilliantly. However, the LyX will be passed around proof reader, it will be ideal if the manuscript is modified as little as possible. Is there any possible method to be included in the Preamble? I found this post, but couldn't figured out how it works. blog.cleverly.com/permalinks/322.html

comment How to change font size in verse environment?
This above solution seems don't have the normal verse function anymore, what if I just want to tweak the font size, font style a bit? will be great if it can be set up in Preamble.

comment automatically to apply \enlargethispage{\baselineskip} when single-word-widow occurs
it works very well indeed. It seems to mitigated all widows. However, I found it actually confused with diagrams. I tried to reduced the number to 8000 or 5000, doesn't do much. I don't mind widow lines that much in this book, since it is a play, one or two line over the other page doesnt matter that much—just single-word widow that is unforgivable. Is it possible to detect them? It is likely to be the combination of "single word + punctuation. "

comment Selecting optical size?
@egreg ps. is there an overview to all the optical sizes? I found this, mirrors.ctan.org/fonts/lm/doc/fonts/lm/tstlmot1.pdf but it seems doesnt co-relates to actual files that t1clm2j.fd specified.
