comment What are the pros and cons of using hard wrapping, and why is it so common with LaTeX?
The "break after 80 chars" leads to more readable lines as well. I think you'd be hard-pressed to effectively edit text that was 30 inches wide. :)

comment How to enter publications “in press”, or “submitted to” in BibTeX?
I could be wrong, but doesn't the notes field show up in the output with the @article type as well?

comment How to do custom page numbering
You didn't say whether you have a choice in the matter, but I personally find this method of page numbering infuriating because it makes searching for a particular page quite difficult, since it's no longer possible to predict how much deeper in the document page N is when I'm on page M.

comment Note inside \cite brackets, at beginning instead of end
Ah, OK. I think for the current project it may be too late in the game to introduce fundamental new stuff like biblatex, but I will definitely keep it in mind for the future.

comment Tools for automating document compilation
@TH, look into Skim. It doesn't require that application change before updating.
