comment Climographs (climate diagrams) with pgfplots
Thanks for the comments. 1) Yes, a linear scaledown at 100 by factor ten ("from 20 to 200 per tick"). 2) yes, correct. 3) Nice, thanks, will have a look at it. :)

I did choose the gnuplot method. Thank you. :)

comment Combined List of Figures and Tables?
Thank you, too, this works as well, so +1. I accepted @DavidCarlisle's answer however because it needs less code.

Thanks, this works now. :)

comment Combined List of Figures and Tables?
This gives me \caption outside float on all tables. And I assume it should mean \let\endtable\endfigure (instead of '\lettendtable\endfigure')?

comment Combined List of Figures and Tables?
@DavidCarlisle Ah, now I get what you are meaning with the numbering... Figures and Tables should be numbered in sequence. So, after the first picture "Figure 1.1" should come "Table 1.2" even if it's the first table. But I'd like to use both, table and figure environments, for semantical reasons.

comment Combined List of Figures and Tables?
@DavidCarlisle If I just use figure everywhere then the tables won't have "Table 2.1: [caption]" below them, but "Figure 2.1: [caption]".

comment Inconsolata missing after MiKTeX update
OK, thanks. As written in the edit to my last comment: \usepackage{zi4} makes it work again.

comment Inconsolata missing after MiKTeX update
@UlrikeFischer Interesting. So, this is a MiKTeX database error using a wrong file name? edit: Yeah, If I change \usepackage{inconsolata} (that always worked and is also on the Font Catalogue) to \usepackage{zi4}, it works again...

@PredragPunosevac I don't need to use pgfplots, but I'd like to. ;) Be it for learning or for fun or just because it generally looks better. ;)

comment How to plot a surface from a set of data?
@Jake It's experimental data that was given to me. I did not generate it. The first two columns are varied parameters and the last column is the measured value in a physical experiment.

comment Static analysis of LaTeX documents?
Well, a static C analyzer won't check stdio.h when one writes #include 'stdio.h', so a LaTeX analyzer would not check the external files of amsmath when \usepackage{amsmath} occurs. And of course, everything the tool should do is giving hints, it should not do automated corrections. But I agree that it's much harder for LaTeX than for a "regular" language. But I would not call it impossible. +1, but I'll wait with accepting for possible other answers.

comment How to use “LaTeX in Word”?
What about switching completly to LaTeX? If you already TeXify your math, then TeXifiyng your text, too, will be a piece of cake.

comment How to use declared TikZ functions in \foreach condition?
Ah, my question was not detailed enough. I edited it. I actually need two functions in the range. But \pgfmathresult is only one container.

comment Is usage of \ell instead of l in math mode best practice?
@T.Verron In Germany there are also other norms that have to be used by law. They are mostly compatible to the SI, but in some details they differ (\cdot instead of \times: 2 \cdot 10^5 instead of 2 \times 10^5). For liter several symbols are officially (l, L and \ell) allowed, but \ell is the most common from historical reasons.

comment Is usage of \ell instead of l in math mode best practice?
If \ell can/should be used for liters also depends on the country, you are in. In German-speaking countries the \ell is commonly used for liters in all places, while in English speaking countries it's not.

comment Is usage of \ell instead of l in math mode best practice?
@ergeg But there are use cases when a specific symbol is common in a physics or mathematics group or theory. The symbol produced by \ell is common in statistical mechanics, for example, where the non-usage of it could leed to confusion in the community. Another example would be the distinction between the angular momentum in classical (l) and quantum mechanics (\ell), which is often made by choosing different symbols for the same letter.
