I'm a chartered mathematician, computer scientist and book production editor. I have a number of packages on CTAN, and I write LaTeX books, illustrated children's books and crime fiction. I have a FAQ, a bug tracker and a feature request tracker for my LaTeX packages and a list of LaTeX resources.

comment bulk letter with datatool: how to handle linebreak csv-field
Please provide a minimal working example (MWE) document showing how you're using the data in the document (for example, are you just using the standard letter class with the letter environment), and also a short sample csv file with an example entry that needs a line break.

comment New glossaries group
Try removing the < and > characters from the label <subscripts>. For a MWE, just create a document that contains those definitions. \documentclass{article}\usepackage{glossaries} followed by you two definitions given and then \begin{document}\end{document}.

comment How can I make a list of websites in my book?
@EnthusiasticStudent Yes, you could use datatool, but I think you'd need to ask that as a follow-up question. If you're not using \gls in your document, then you don't really need to use glossaries.

@EnthusiasticStudent No, just use \glsaddall as in Christian's answer.

comment Cannot select radio elements, even output is not similiar
I can confirm your issue (Fedora 19 x64, TeXLive 2014, hyperref v6.83m) using pdflatex. If I used xelatex the giant open quotes disappear but there are still no radio boxes for the second and third options. I've tried viewing the pdf with okular and evince but the result's the same. I sent a copy of the pdf to my son and it viewed correctly on Adobe Reader running on his Windows laptop. I don't know what's causing it.

Have you tried \newacronym[parent=definition]{uv}{UV}{Ultraviolet}?

comment Strange warning
There's a similar question on SO libpng warning: iCCP: known incorrect sRGB profile but it doesn't expand any further on the other answers here.

SVN will let you know if there are any conflicts (for example if you've both edited the same line). See the Resolve Any Conflicts section of the svn book for further details.

comment glossaries package is printing all entries under acronyms
You've got rid of the main glossary using nomain, so you only have one glossary (the list of acronyms). Try removing nomain.
