The second example works for me, thank you. (I didn't try the first.)

@Leo: OK. How can they be used? Are there C70 fonts I can install?

comment Removing spaces between “words” in math mode
@Joseph, you don't have to use it in your documents. I write documents that look the best I can make them, not ones that follow "the rules". I deliberately left out extraneous explanations and context, but it's a deliberate choice and it looks way better in my context.

@Marc, I want it because it looks better that way IMO. Not sure why anyone would want the letter x... that looks pretty sloppy.

comment How to write Japanese with LaTeX?
Note that this example only works on Ubuntu Quetzal if you install the package latex-cjk-japanese-wadalab (via blog.mindfall.net/?p=221).

comment Set up a system to alternate between genders per paragraph
FWIW, I'd find that style horribly confusing. It's bad enough in baby books that do something like this. If you want to be fair, roll a die at the beginning of the document and then be consistent. You must have at least one die around, right? :)

comment How to configure Latex to open the last page in PDF reader?
Many PDF readers can refresh the document if it changes: e.g., evince on Linux and Skim as well as Preview (?) for the Mac. Then you could "go" to the exact page you were working on, not just the last page.
