comment How can I get the TikZ calc library to calculate some point coordinates correctly?
Thank you very much Gonzalo Medina you for the elegant solution to my problem. I have learned two new things: (a) The use of \coordinate; and (b) the use of \node[inner sep=0pt,outer sep=0pt] {} to kill the padding around the nodes. Great stuff.

comment How can I get LyX to compile child documents selectively?
Thank you very much (once more) scottkosty for educating me. The problem was not a bug! It was my ignorance! All I need to do is to drag the vertical separator bar between the columns to see the full path names to the included files. Great!!! Now I know. Thanks.

Thanks scottkosty. Using branches may help but I suspect it may complicate things a little: I may ultimately require as many branches as I have chapters. A new idea has occurred to me which may help solve my problem. I'll post it once it has proved its worth. Thanks.

comment How do I prevent LyX from loading fontspec automatically?
Thank you very much for your response Paul. Your suggestion is certainly a good avenue for me to explore and I think it should work. However, I have one problem, by the time we use "ERT" are we not past the \begin{document} line already (and not in the preamble)?

comment How do I prevent LyX from loading fontspec automatically?
Thanks David for pointing out my confusion between fonspec and fontenc. I pledge my ignorance: I started using the two packages last week. I have mixed them up. How embarassing? But how could one manage to tell LyX not load a package if one wants to load that package with a specific set of options? Thanks, in advance.

Thanks scottkosty. Setting preferences as suggested by your answer has made it possible for me to use non-TeX fonts in LyX.

Thanks a lot Bernard. Your response to my question has enabled me to discover the power of the fontspec package. I am making progress with exploration of the capabilities of the package. I am very grateful for the answer.
