comment Correct way to specify discretionary hyphens in bib files with biblatex/biber
I can't test now. But it sounds like a bug, so I suggest a bug report. Besides this: the replacements can be configured, see the biber documentation.

comment Lyx in Hebrew doesn't work
Search in the windows start menu for miktex settings. There is tab "roots" where you can attach the main culmus folder. Google about how to open a command line. Enter there "updmap" and hit enter.

comment Lyx in Hebrew doesn't work
Unpack the culmusXXX.zip package in some folder (outside your miktex). (Don't run the .bat-file). You should get a root folder with subfolders fonts, tex and some more. Check if in the folder miktex/config is a updmap.cfg. Open miktex setting and attach the root folder as a new root. In the command line run "updmap". Then hope the best (lyx may be easy to use put it is painful to debug).

comment Did one manage to get the new dvisvgm driver from PGF 3.0 to work?
The viewbox problem is also reproducible with the older dvisvgm and so I would suggest that you make a bug report at the pgf-site. According to the author of dvisvgm there is probably a special missing github.com/mgieseki/dvisvgm/issues/41.

I naturally meant "you really should not do it ...".

comment Some Chinese fonts cannot be used in xelatex
Check the log file. In general fontspec tells you if it can't create a variant like bold.

You could define a new mathversion which uses other fonts, but you really should do it as David already pointed out. Math fonts carry meaning. I also wouldn't write captions in italics: italics emphasize and so are not a good choice for "side" information.

comment How to make automatically line break when use longtable?
Yes. And users must also wait several times to get correct references, tableofcontents, citations, tikz overlays and other things. Get used to it. A correct document needs a number of compilation until everything is in place.

postit obviously didn't compile twice and so the wrong width from the previous run got him/her wrong lines.

comment How to make automatically line break when use longtable?
When you change something in a longtable you should compile at least twice so that the widths can be recalculated correctly.

With biblatex you can restrict the bibliography to a chapter.

There is no dvisvgm in miktex but if I compile your document with latex and then use the dvisvgm from TL14 it works fine: Inkscape shows the hello and a blue circle.

comment Why does htlatex not work as expected?
@michal.h21: I don't want to add more burden on Karl, but patches are not really useful for a normal user (I e.g. had some trouble to get the gnu patch working on windows).

comment Print text when bibliography is empty
\makeatletter\def\blx@arn@bibempty{Try it out}\makeatother (put is somewhere behind \usepackage{biblatex} naturally) (untested as you didn't provide a complete document for a test).

comment Why does htlatex not work as expected?
@michal.h21: As far as I know newer tex4ht-files are not on CTAN, and so miktex doesn't see bug corrections (how do texlive get them, from Karl?). Would it be possible either to upload newer versions or at least to put somewhere a tds.zip which could be installed (rather) easily by miktex users?

biblatex warns you if the bib is empty. You could redefine the command used for the message \blx@warn@bibempty.

Well ! Missing \endcsname is a quite clear error message. tex.stackexchange.com/questions/161229/…
