comment Representing linguistic text annotations in LaTeX
Well, I really want to the names of the annotations there (instead of replacing them with a less self-explanatory notation), but the fact that you introduced me to ulem, helped me to make underlines that wrap, and I also got to see that \underline stacks. I'm posting my solution as an answer now.

comment Representing linguistic text annotations in LaTeX
Some of the spans to be annotated are more than two words long, and some of them overlap (though it should help that they nest).

comment Representing linguistic text annotations in LaTeX
I like the underline suggestion, and the ulem suggestion, but once I started looking at the ulem package, I decided to take this in a totally different direction.

comment Replacing labels in EPS file by LaTeX - text not where it should be
You'll also see the same behavior when using TikZ or pstricks to draw images with TeX text included in the image. A DVI previewer won't position the text properly, but a postscript or PDF version will be fine. This is due to the limitations of the DVI previewers.

@Lev, I do see the pixelation at 1600%.

@Lev: I zoomed into 400% and I do not see the pixels. It looks smooth. And I checked the font embedding info.

Most modern setups should be able to give you a nice scalable Type 1 Computer Modern with hinting (no need to change the font), but if you're having problems you can look at a couple of questions in the TUG FAQ that discuss this issue, and mostly relate to older TeX installations.

Letter 1's problems stem (primarily) from being converted to PDF a long time ago. Are you having that kind of problem with your documents?

You're wrong about the first document. The problem is that it's using scalable Type 3 fonts, but with no hinting.

comment Prevent a paragraph break after a section heading
I tried this, and couldn't get it right -- sometimes it kept sticking the heading before every paragraph (I think it was interfering with my \TODO command), and it would have taken more work to make it break before the section break in \subsection{Foo}\section{Bar} (those will go away eventually, but I have to come up with stuff to write first). It seems there are lots of subtleties in taking the \everypar approach yourself.

comment Prevent a paragraph break after a section heading
This appears to be what LaTeX's \@startsection and titlesec do internally, but I couldn't follow their code because they wrote it to be much more generic yours. Thanks for the simplification.
