comment Book style does wrong page shift
Some PDF viewers also have a switch when in two-page mode, to allow you to place the odd-numbered pages on the left or (more correctly) right of the pair. Usually, the default setting is Wrong

comment Trying to suppress URLs with BibLaTeX, using a simple person's method
Thanks, Marco, \EveryCitekey is what I was looking for, but it's nice to have the biber tweak in my first-aid kit as well...

comment why this math mode in lettrine
FWIW, I've had a similar problem with EB Garamond, but without lettrine. I suspect the problem may lie in mt-EBGaramond.cfg (the microtype configuration), as renaming this file 'cures' the (my) problem, as does omitting microtype altogether. Using LuaTeX also cures.

comment Garamond kills bold Fonts
(Warning: Pedantic Comment!) Strictly speaking, since Garamond is an early, classical font, it shouldn't be used with bold characters; just roman, italic, and (maybe) small caps. "Bold is modern stuff".

comment Adobe Garamond Pro (otf) with mathdesign
@Luigi : Have you installed (That is, right-click on the file, select Install) the fonts from Windows' point-of-view?

comment Adobe Garamond Pro (otf) with mathdesign
I assume you're using XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX. On my machine (Windows 7), your example compiles without error. Looks like a "font installation" problem. Is it necessary to run mktexlsr?

comment What is the capital Greek letter for tau?
In a sense, my previous comments, were, I admit, "mild trolling". Some of @CharlesStewart 's "nuisance" is, occasionally, necessary: for example, for \MakeLowerCase{} to behave correctly.

comment What is the capital Greek letter for tau?
@CharlesStewart Oh, yes, the glyphs are the same, but the semantic context is different, and we are always told (correctly, IMO) to "do LaTeX things semantically"

comment What is the capital Greek letter for tau?
Interesting how "they" didn't do the "semantic thing" in this particular case. After all, \Tau means something substantially different from 'T'.

comment What's the correct syntax for accents?
Isn't it about time for everyone to use BibLaTeX and biber (especially those with little or no investment in BibTeX)?
