You can't nest blockquotes. Try out <This is <a> short quote.>.

comment How to limit number of authors in square brackets in alphabetic biblatex style?
You can change this with \DeclareLabelalphaTemplate. I can't test a solution as you didn't provide a minimal example so you will have to find out the exact code yourself.

comment Biblatex not referring to article
@Andrew: A \cite-command is enough. You are not forced to print a bibliography.

comment Biblatex not referring to article
You didn't run biber (or it failed for some reason). Check the blg-file.

mwe is a part of miktex. Use the miktex package manager to install it.

comment Error in using package “mwe” in Latex
Texworks is an editor. Not a tex system. And the mer package is a bundle of example graphics, imho it doesn't contain a sty.

comment Winedt 6 and Adobe Reader 11, open in the last viewed page
Use a viewer like sumatra which can handles synctex. The best that winedt can do with adobe reader is to reopen the reader at the same page you were before the compilation. (I don't know if winedt 6 can do at least this it with reader XI, perhaps you need a newer winedt.)

comment What is the purpose of reseting xleftmargin and xrightmargin when numbers=none?
It is probably some leftover that can be explained only historically. showexpl started probably with rather fixed settings and then was extended with more options to allow more flexibility. If you have suggestions to improve the code: write the author.

comment Error using \variation command in the skak package
In the current skak \variation "plays" the moves too (so that longmoves works) and so move numbers are important. If you want to continue a variation you will have to use one of the continuation commands (in your case \continuevariationcurrent) see refman.pdf. xskak hasn't this problem as variations are no played (and it has more possibilities to play more than one game).

comment Customizing names of auxiliary file: safe practices?
@egreg: I like the idea too. A boolean that checks the first line for a message would very useful.

comment Footnotes (e.g. citations) in the footline of beamer frames?
I don't think that you should do such things in a presentation. If people start to read a frame like a normal text they will no longer hear what you are saying. References etc should better go in accompaigning material.

comment Conflict between UTF8 and UTF-CJK
\@chapter complains because something is putting the [ at the start of its first argument in braces. You can see such a [ in your second snippet. But it is not possible to see under which circumstances lyx does it and if it is related to the chinese.

comment Biblatex mla - no bibliography, no references, no nothing
When citations are not resolved this is normally due to problems in the biber run. Show the blg-file.
