No that solution doesn't play well with tufte.

comment Increasing the text size in tufte documents
This seems like a good solution, but it doesn't play well with tufte. I get the error: '.../latex/koma-script/scrextend.sty:1088: Command \multiplefootnotemarker already defined.' and document doesn't compile.

@HarishKumar Would you recommend one over the other, i.e. scr or memoir?

comment Increasing the text size in tufte documents
@HarishKumar Since I may have this issue fairly often, I'm willing to make fairly major changes - including changing document class.

Since this is quite an important question for me, I just wanted the best possible answer. Nothing particularly special.

comment Increasing the size of a minipage proportional to the contain
A bad question, sorry. I meant that keeping the textwidth fixed and adjusting the height.

Sorry, I don't understand what you mean. Where does fixing the width present a problem for height?

comment Increasing the size of a minipage proportional to the contain
Thanks, but the gap isn't proportional to the amount of text in the environment. For example, \begin{Notes}Test\end{Notes} should only have a small gap around it.

comment Using the “master file” with emacs and Sweave
No. I think it something to do with the file extensions (they're .Rnw not .tex).

comment Using the “master file” with emacs and Sweave
To sweave a document you use the command M-n s and it doesn't (seem) to have any idea about the concept of a master file. I tried to hack my .emacs, but things quickly got messy. For example, auctex expects .tex file extensions. At this point, I thought there must be a better way.

comment Using the “master file” with emacs and Sweave
In emacs C+c C+b copies the preamble and the "included file" into a temporary file called _region.tex. It then latexs that file. Of course, chapter numbers, etc, are off. But it's very handy for quick checks.

comment Creating environments with different colours and sizes
@Hendrik-vogt: To leave gaps, all I do is change the text colour from red to white. I just need something simple.

Can the 'comment' package increase text size within the the notes region?

comment Reduce space before and after an enviroment
@TH: If vspace is the wrong thing to do, what's the correct thing to do, i.e. how do you redefine Hinput? Or is this another question?
