comment QED symbol on the same page as proof
I have run into the same problem with no blank like before \end{proof} but with \end{equation} before \end{proof}. Is there another solution to that problem? Actually, I found the answer here: tex.stackexchange.com/a/128022/18

comment clip in TikZ leaves a faint outline of clip region even after filling with white!
I don't think this is the problem. In fact, your workaround still gives the faint outline of the middle circle. The "ultra thick" was just so that with the clipping, the border of the region was uniform.

This answer is very helpful, because it actually describes a better of doing what I was doing. It does not explain why I see the outline, but it seems that this may be a rendering problem (I use Skim on Mac OS X, but also Preview suffers from the same problem.)

How can I go about checking whether a given font has that glyph?

comment Broken Arrow in Lucida Bright Font
The reason I found this question/answer is that actually it's not OK. I get an ugly dashed arrow when I use \xrightarrow.

comment Broken Arrow in Lucida Bright Font
This did not work for me using XeLaTeX and TeX Gyre Pagella as maths font. The extended part of the arrow is invisible.

comment Square root sign has dotted line (PGF/TikZ + XeLaTeX). Is this a bug? Is there a workaround?
Indeed! That works! (But this is surely not the intended behaviour, right?)

One question: why do you recommend utf8 instead of utf8x? I must admit I forgot why I made that choice when I thought about that problem.

comment `\pounds` misbehaving with the `eulervm` package even in T1 encoding
Thanks. I am undecided about leaving the £ outside of math mode. I tend to agree that they detract from the maths, yet at the same the currency is a system of units and just as in physics formulae, the units are often part of the equation.

In the meantime I'm putting the £ outside math-mode, so it's not as if this is critical, but I would like to know the answer.

comment In TexLive 2009, 'tlmgr' tells me there are 'no updates available' for months now. Really?
If I may answer my own question... I just came across a thread in the tex-live mailing list which seems to suggest that TeXLive 2010 pretest is also frozen prior to release.

I'm running a pretest version of TeXLive 2010, but I also find with tlmgr (and what I believe to be a correct repository) that no updates are available. Is this also the expected behaviour?

comment \colon for maps in opposite direction
Yes, I understand and agree that there is a semantic distinction. Alas, I find $f:A\to B$ much easier to parse (in the source) than $f\colon A \to B$, not to mention easier to type. So will not be using \colon any time soon :(

comment \colon for maps in opposite direction
Why is \colon preferred over :? I just checked a random sample of books in my office and the overwhelming majority uses the symmetrical spacing of :. The exceptions (among the 15 or so books I checked) are Atiyah-MacDonald, Besse and Kobayashi-Nomizu. I have to admit that I never sat down to think about this before.

@Arthur: Yes! That's the one. Many thanks.

comment New language - hyphenation
@Konrad: Hyphenation in English is a bit like English Common Law. It's by precedent: so you have to see how it was done in the past. Nowadays it's recorded in the dictionaries, of course. Hyphenation in TeX has a curious history, though: it's the result of a couple of PhD theses supervised by Knuth in Stanford. I'll try to fish out the reference later.
