comment Free, online way to convert a PDF (formulated by LaTeX) to an editable Word document?
Yes, whatever the original is, that's where to start.

You'll have much better luck starting w/ the original Word .doc. If you don't have access to that, why are you concerned about it? Tell the person who made the .pdf and leave it at that.

comment Substitute Proper Quotations for Degree Marks
In what ways do the two scripts which you cite mangle the example which I provide? I’ll bet long odds and family heirlooms they don’t work on it correctly.

comment Knuth “Some Implementations of TeX”…
Systems which use Unix IPC (Inter Process Communication) are able to do something of this sort (e.g., TeXview.app on NeXTstep). I suspect that Dr. Knuth was talking about systems running on one of the large computer systems which he used at Sanford though.

comment Advice for coding with excessive quantities of symbols, accents, and special characters
Jonathan Kew showed me a nifty technique where he could set mathematics using UTF-8, then transcode it to the equivalent TeX commands, then back to UTF-8 --- perhaps something along those lines? Just use XeLaTeX, appropriate fonts, the right Unicode code points and all you should need to use would be Unicode, font changes and semantic markup.

comment Making a paperback book from a LaTeX file
See my example design for Mike Brotherton's Star Dragon in Memoir, a xelatex example posted here which does proper trim box information in a .pdf, &c.

comment How do you setup a TeX document to self publish a book online?
Using what versions of what tools? I just tested the code using: XeTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.5-0.9999.3 (TeX Live 2013) and the .pdf opened up fine in Acrobat Pro X 10.1.13. If you have a problem w/ your setup, update --- if you're up-to-date and still have a problem file a bug report.
