@dcmst : That works, even though I don't really understand most of the parameters. If you'd care to post that as an answer, I'll be happy to accept it.

comment Turkish (İ) character inside code listings
As an alternative approach to using fontenc and inputenc, you may want to consider using a 'more modern' approch, with xelatex or lualatex, which process Unicode files directly, in place of pdflatex. (That's assuming you don't already have a big investment in legacy files.)

comment Where can I find submission and style guidelines for TUGboat?
Thank you, [B]arbara. As an amateur author, I don't have too many hangups as to my opinions, so that's cool. Once you see the article, I think you'll just love my approach to item 2 :-)

comment Other Alphabet [Turkish Language] sorting in Index
The (Iıİi)'s don't really have a solution, if your index is bilingual. If, for example, you sort under the Turkish rules, then the index entries for 'Ideal' and 'ideal' will be classified under two separate initial letters, which is confusing, independently of whether it is 'correct' or not. General indices, IMHO, should be all lowercase except for proper nouns (which perhaps should be in a separate index). But then again, that might not suit those who speak German.

comment Free PDF viewer allowing to measure in a document?
Click and hold the Measurement Tool Icon -> Show Comments styles palette, where you can change colour, etc, and scaling, and create multiple different measuring profiles if you do this very often

comment The vertical lines in my tabular environment are scattered
Just FYI, it's generally considered a Really Bad Idea to use vertical lines in tables. I'm afraid I don't have the needed citation to hand at the moment, but I'm sure another user will step in to provide it.
