I'm graduate student of physics. My maxim is to use open source in every possible/reasonable situation! In my daily business, I write my documents with Latex with hardly any exception.

comment Why do the less than symbol (<) and the greater than symbol (>) appear wrong as upside down exclamation (¡) or question mark (¿)?
OK, I was not typing it correct in the sense of the variable as I focused on the operator. You're right - use your preferred version $\mathit{foo}<0$, $\mathrm{foo}<0$, $\mathbf{foo}<0$, or whatever variable. ;)

comment Rescale a character to fill a complete A4 page
@LoopSpace: If you let the PDF viewer do the job, it gets somewhat ambiguous. Every viewer has different settings... Do you agree?

comment Rescale a character to fill a complete A4 page
@AndrewStacey: I would say this strategy sounds much like what UlrikeFischer provided in her comment except that you would print each letter separately? Hence this would mean more work and files... ;)

comment Rescale a character to fill a complete A4 page
I would say on A4 pages the width is the limiting factor. Hence \resizebox{!}{0.9\textwidth}{L} was what I preferred as I wrote each character on a standard (non-landscape) single page.
