comment Navigate a TeX code using emacs
@CharlesHolbrow I've updated the answer, but unfortunately haven't been able to find a good replacement for the link. What I did find didn't have the details of the key bindings.

comment As an expert, can you always use TeX for (nearly) any kind of document?
@SeanAllred I'm even later with a reply to your comment! For technical documents, I use memoir with a conventional Part/Chapter/Section... structure. I haven't built a special class (though I know I should), but have a giant preamble that I copy from project to project and then increment as necessary. I know that's horrible, so dont bother telling me... :). I also have a pretty front cover built with xcoffins à la Elementare Typographie. But again, I haven't built a package for it yet.

Seems like a curious value for the default? Would anyone know why? cc: @JosephWright

comment How do I edit PDF files produced by LaTeX in Illustrator? Fonts are not found
I agree with @doncherry that this is off-topic. The OP's needs are so grotesque he can't possibly be a TeX user, which I would see as the only possible reason for keeping this question here

comment Very long footnotes cause page breaks
This isn't, of course, an answer to your question as stated, but have you considered turning your footnotes into endnotes? In memoir, the command \foottopagenote automatically re-purposes the \footnote infrastructure, and all you need to add is one or more strategically placed \printpagenotes commands. 12.6 in the latest memoir manual. Your readers may prefer "long" footnotes this way, too...

comment how to protect pdf geneated from pdflatex and xelatex
Oh, BTW, and of course, if by chance you're trying to stop people copying, those without a secretary can just photograph the pages (or export them as images) and send them off to the google for character recognition.

comment Getting ! instead of comparison sign < in cases
If I put the $s outside the cases environment, your code works fine for me (though you may want \[ and \] to make it a display, rather than inline maths).

Would you like to share with us what you are trying to achieve? The answer may depend on why you want to limit editing (which is generally an inconvenience for your end user).

comment Calculating the ink coverage of a page
To be pedantic, in XeTeX and LuaTeX, you can chop the box up a little bit further by accessing the sidebearings, but this, of course, doesn't help you get at the position, nor the amount, of the actual ink in the glyph.
