comment ltablex - Multi-column problem
So, \tabcolsep is some fixed width which is the length of the border of the column, beyond which text is not written by default? Could I have a reference for \dimexpr? And why is the \relax necessary?

comment Error when using both minted and TikZ externalize with xelatex
I was mistaken. This does work. The problem is that cut and paste messed up the quotation marks. Sorry about that. However, I'm still unclear why it does work. And since this extra option is not required for pdflatex, why is it needed here? Can you elaborate? The external/system call is what is externally called on the standalone pictures, right? So why the extra shell-escape ? Incidentally, I notice you are using --shell-escape, but -shell-escape. It seems that both of them work, but what is the difference if any?

This doesn't work for me. Did you test it? If it had worked, I'd have asked why my previous version worked with pdflatex and not xelatex.

Not that old.TeX Live 2009 as packaged for Debian squeeze.

I'm not sure what documentclass standalone is, but it gives me a compile error. If I change this to article it works.

comment fancy text boxes like in Redhat documentation or mercurial book
I'd like to know how to do this too. But I'd prefer to just use a bit of TikZ code rather than a package.
