comment What is the largest work that has been published using LaTeX?
I'm sure no one really prints it and probably no one downloads it either--we provide the chapters as separate pdfs. But the book is really built as a single book. It takes about 30 minutes for a single pass of pdflatex. The link for the most recent published version is here, the second link on the page: support.sas.com/documentation/onlinedoc/stat/index.html Separate procedures pdf/html are in their own pages, like this one: support.sas.com/rnd/app/stat/procedures/aceclus.html By the way, these docs are authored in LaTeX and converted to DocBook XML to create HTML.

comment longtable leaves wrong margins inside list environment
thanks to both of your comments I have this working. @Christian, I think this is what you were talking about. I surrounded the \longtable, \endlongtable with \bgroup \egroup. It seems to be working now. I need this syntax for reasons that aren't important here.

comment longtable leaves wrong margins inside list environment
@David, you mean don't use that syntax, right? It has been working for years but this is the first time I've heard from a user who put it inside a list environment. If the best thing to do is switch to begin--end syntax I'll do it. Is there any downside (like extra vertical space) to watch out for?

comment longtable leaves wrong margins inside list environment
my question is a simplified version of what's going on but it does show the problem. I understand I can shift the table in this case since we know it is in a list but this is for a custom class and I don't know in which environments the longtable will be used.

comment typographically is ragged-right better than fully-justified text?
I see the question is in danger of being closed; I'd like to reword it to be more useful. Not sure how. My concern about switching from justified to raggedright is my feeling that LaTeX goes to a lot of work to get justification right and going to raggedright would throw all that algorithmic goodness out the door.

Thanks @barbarabeeton, can't believe I didn't try that. Forest vs trees.

comment Test the hyperlinks of a pdf document
@Clément, yes it is actually in the code block--see the two for loops? The first (outer loop) loops through the pages in the document, the second (inner loop) loops through the annotations on each given page. Anything on a page that responds to the user is an Annotation. If you write a function to check the url, and pass the function above an open PDF file (using pyPdf lib), the code above will work as-is. If you need more help, please be specific on what is giving you problems. I think this answer won't help you much if you don't already know python.
