comment How can I create a rectangle symbol?
I meant the name. Just curiosity. halign in some way is “horizontal alignment”, valign for “vertical”, but oo? “over and over”?

What does ooalign stands for? (I'm mostly interested in the oo since align is self explanatory :D)

comment Does the comma look the same within/without the dollar signs?
Note that you should use \[..\] in LaTeX rather than $$..$$. Ideally you should do $x$, and then you would need \[x\text{,}\] but since in Computer Modern they look almost (if not completely) identical, people tend to use \[x,\] which is, usually, not noticeable.

comment Could someone further elucidate expansion, catcodes, and scantokens…?
@DavidCarlisle I guess, since it's inline code, that spaces don't count too much. That's not a big deal.

Will the future bring us a \verb that works inside arguments (by “actively changing catcodes” with \scantokes). Or is there a problem?

comment Color each letter in document
This looks like a job for LuaTeX. BTW, the problem comes from replacing c, which also replaces \textcolor{color1} to \textcolor{\textcolor{color3}{c}olor}. If you define \cs_new_protected_nopar:Npn \__color_three:n { \textcolor{color3} } then it would probably work with the regex replace \c{__color_three:n}\cB\{\1\cE\}.

@peaceoutside If you can't type ô, â, ê in your computer, \^{o}, \^{a}, \^{e} is very handy.

comment How can I write a cursive letter k in math?
\ell is not cursive. It has a loop to help diferentiate over other letters or symbols in math that may cause confusion. What you need is look for a font (probably script font) that has lowercase letters.

comment Why does not `\spaceskip` work inside a TikZ node?
Mmm… still it would be nice to know why is that necessary.

comment Upright Lowercase $\pi$ as Default
And remember that being usable only in math mode is a feature. What is math should be math, and what is text should be text.

comment Upright Lowercase $\pi$ as Default
Yes, this does redefine \pi. I added the version with \pi and π so you can see that you still have italic pi available, in case you don't use it as the constant.
