comment Is there an incompatibility between `eulervm` and `fourier` packages?
"What are the combinations of fonts you're trying to use?" I wasn't trying to control this, other than with the default. In other words, there was no further font commands than those in the minimal document above. In case anyone else is interested, I've since found a compatible (and appealing) font with the Euler maths font: TeXGyre Pagella.

comment Is there any way to do a correct word count of a LaTeX document?
I had opportunity to use detex recently and it leaves many TeX-related words which have nothing to do with the content. I would almost go as far as saying that compiling to PDF and then using pdftotext might produce a more accurate count, even when it contains page numbers and repeats the headers.

I didn't find anything strange in my log file, though. This is why I asked.

comment What is a good way to draw Dynkin diagrams in LaTeX?
Actually, this only uses the epic package, not the eepic package.

comment I want to start using LaTeX on Mac OS X. Where do I start?
Yes, I too use LaTeXit for that purpose, but the OP seems interested in typesetting a long document, for which LaTeXit is not suitable.
