comment How to generate robust verbatim bibliography data
Wonderful - thanks! I thought I'd tried verbatim, but that was when I was still drowning in all the other problems. Give me a few minutes to retrofit, and I'll almost certainly accept this answer.

comment Problems creating a new kind of bibliography
@moewe : No, thank you, I appreciate that. My real problem was (will be) getting to grips with the different layers of bibliography entry formatting. I'm sure there'll be more questions later!

@moewe Yes, thanks, I had seen that, but had a great deal of difficulty understanding the answer (my fault, not yours! -- the example itself had complex requirements).

comment Beamer with Goettingen, xelatex: white space on top of the sidebar
lualatex doesn't appear to have this problem. Curious, though - this looks like it could be a (xelatex-induced) browser artifact. PdfXchange Viewer and the TexWorks viewer both show the white space, but it stays the same size even at 6400% zoom.

comment Various *sty files missing when using adjustbox
Two simple rules for a quiet life with TeX Live: (1) Use the built-in package manager (tlmgr) rather than your Linux package manager; and (2) install everything.

comment Documentclass Standalone - Outcome with rounded corners
How do you want these rounded corners to show themselves? E.g. you can just print square white corners on rounded paper, or embed the page in a round-cornered tikz frame. There's really no such thing as a "page with rounded corners" in the abstract sense.

comment Trim marks & bleed
Plus, if you're using the twoside class option, then the default margins for geometry are asymmetric (2:3).

comment Trim marks & bleed
Are you using asymmetric margins? Maybe your page (16x14) is centred on your paper (a4), but your text block is not centred on your page. Try \usepackage{showframe} for a clue

Show us what you've tried already. This isn't a "please draw this for me for free" website.

comment Why can't TeX Live's size be reduced?
Even at $100 a terabyte, that 4Gb costs you ¢40. You'd probably take at least 1 hour to save ¢20. Multiply by five to estimate the additional costs of backup etc, and you get $1 per hour. That's a lot less than minimum wage.

comment What is the best way to put a long list of words into latex beamer (presentation)
Presumably you want a multi-column list, with automatic column breaks?
