comment Don't indent the bibliography
@user10324 The labels are designed to align on the right bracket of the label. The number is used only as something to be measured to leave enough space for the labels as they grow. If you use 9 and you have more than 9 references, the labels won't align properly on the right, but instead will be aligned effectively on their left brackets rather than their right brackets.

comment Aligning trees built with tikzpicture
@HaroldRosenberger Use the [missing] key on a child node. See How do I make an unbalanced binary tree. You may also want to check out tikz-qtree (see my answer there) if you are drawing trees a lot; its syntax is much more compact.

comment BibTeX Error Message
It's hard to diagnose this without any code that shows what you are doing. Try to comment out parts of your document until the error disappears and then you can maybe identify the problem. If you're still stuck you can then post a minimal document that shows the problem.

comment Backward opening quote in Mac
What editor are you using? In TeXShop, for example, quotes can be automatically converted to TeX style quotes as you type them. As for converting your existing text, the free text editor TextWrangler has methods for turning " into “ and ”; these could then be easily replaced with TeX style quotes with search and replace.

comment why does using nodes with to in TikZ result in grossly missized labels?
Ben, you can format blocks of code by selecting it and clicking on the {} icon. This indents every line by 4 spaces, and is preferable to using backticks (which are mainly for inline code). I've fixed this for you. It would also be helpful to turn at least one of your code fragments into a complete compilable example for people to play with. Especially since you seem to have some personal macros in it.

comment TikZ: Bug with multiple decorations “at position 1”?
If you make both positions .99999 you get the correct output; if you add one more 9 to each, the bug reappears.

comment How to use table in mdframed?
You can't put the frame around a floating object (the {table}) You can probably put it around the {tabular}+caption I would guess.
