comment Derivatives: enter “evaluated at” vertical bar with multiple values as subscripts
+1 for examples! What are the differences in your three examples in terms of the syntax? I can see the differences in the results, but what do the \stackunder, \stackon and \scriptscriptstyle do in these contexts? Also, what does this do that the \substack macro (from the amsmath package) doesn't do?

comment Add paragraph symbol to section
Note that § is the section sign, not the paragraph sign (the "pilcrow" ). See the Wikipedia articles for the Section Sign (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Section_sign) and the Paragraph Sign (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pilcrow).

comment natbib | Question Mark instead of Citation
Sometimes there is a little bit of magic in any kind of programming. Experience has taught me that most of the time, when I do something ten times and then it changes on the 11th time, it was usually my mistake. But there are times that it's just magic. :-) For *TeX especially, if you use one compiler (e.g. latex) and then switch to another (e.g. pdflatex), sometimes things behave ever-so-slightly differently. It might have something to do with the auto-generated files.

comment How to center align part of an equation within alignat?
Is there a more elegant way to go about it? I'd love to do the same thing, but for me, the b+blablablablablab is ten times longer.

comment Installing hebrew (culmus) on Mac using TexLive
Shoot -- it was about 2.5 months ago, and I remember entirely giving up after that and some other failures. I wish I could remember, but it was too long ago and I don't remember the details. I do remember that it seemed to be a pretty complex failure -- not something trivial to fix -- which is a large part of why I gave up. Again, I'm sorry that this isn't more helpful! :(

comment Installing hebrew (culmus) on Mac using TexLive
I never did get it working. I imagine it's possible, but the instructions given were not enough to make it work.

comment Issue with xindy for package glossaries
I also use makeglossaries. Adding sort=def to the package declaration line (e.g. \usepackage[xindy,sort=def]{glossaries} worked for me also. Unlike @cosmicraga, I do use simple, custom sorting keys, although none of them have commands in them. Even with these custom sort keys, this fix worked for me with no obvious side-effects.
