I did study math and had a knack for it, but I am sooo out of that business now ...

comment Defining custom commands is bad style?
Then again, defining a shorthand for "Hilbert space" prevents "Hilbret space" typoes ...

comment poor man's condensed with pdflatex
@StephanLehmke Would you care to elaborate? I must admit I'm always getting lost between all those files making up a font (.pfb, .vf, .afm, .tfm, .map, .fd) and their interdependencies ...

@Jubobs Letters should keep their heights but become slightly smaller horizontally (e.g. if big O is a circle it should become more elliptical). A proper (not poor man's) condensed font would make considerations for stroke witdths etc., but for not so strong condensing something "mechanical" should suffice.

comment Wrong hyphenation with LY1 font ecoding?
That sounds very plausible (though ber-g should only be acceptable midword if followed by a vowel or possibly liquida, though even these may occur in composita with berg-)
