comment Should I use a day= tag in my BiBTeX files?
biber is not an option with academic publishing, since many require bibtex as part of their back end.

comment Where does `=2plus 43minus` come from?
Hm. It's strange. I tried a simple example and the problem doesn't appear.

comment Should I move to biber? Should I move to biblatex?
Several journals I use require MSWord. I usually prepare the manuscript with LaTeX and then convert to RTF using latex2rtf.

@jon, most Elsevier journals accept LaTeX. You upload the .tex files and they run pdflatex on their backend. It's pretty neat.

@JosephWright, what's that reason?

comment Automatic Capitalization of sectioning headings?
In fact, this is the proper way to do it, since it doesn't require packages not part of the standard distribution. Thanks again.

Ah. tex.stackexchange.com/questions/8851/… Sort of does it.

comment How do I get selective bold in Verbatim?
Thanks for the pointer. I've read the listings doc and can't figure out how to highlight a particular part of a line. I've also looked at the tex.stackexchange.com/q/8851/5049 and it does seem like a lot of overhead. I gather that there is no easier way? This is, unfortunately, something that LaTeX doesn't seem to make easy.

comment Is there some way to embed LaTeX source code in a PDF file?
LaTeXiT appears to do this by storing metadata inside the PDF file. That's different, but it's still super-cool.

Right, but is there an easy way to do it? I'd rather just use \ref and \label...

comment How do I create a PDF file that can be digitally signed?
I was able to do it by combining a previously generated singable PDF file with Acrobat and embedding it in a LaTeX file with pdftk, but that's kind of round-about.
