comment Word breaking for two sentences
I think this is the simpler, cleaner solution as a concept, but I'm not going to vote it up, unless you'd like to provide sufficiently simple example code...

comment Why does MS Word's algorithm for vertical positioning of super- and subscripts not conform to TeX's ?
Sorry, I find your question rather confusing. Are you here to discuss the paper you cite, or do you have a specific problem we can help you to solve? In the former case, this may not be the appropriate place. In the latter, please supply an minimum example of your TeX code and describe why you believe the results are incorrect. We may then be able to help you better.

comment Can you help me with the tables ? ( or How to get the tables right ? )
+1 Good answer, Just one quibble from a memoir fanboy: IMNSHO (1) should read "Choose a good class (memoir, Koma, tufte-book etc)". Memoir comes with booktabs built-in.

comment Is it possible to produce a PDF with un-copyable text?
@warem: No, it's not possible. All you need to break it is a thing called "a typist".

I think all of us here feel your pain; we're not railing at you, but at your institution.

comment svn-multi: committed PDF always has an offset in revision number?
Not really an answer, so I'll leave it as a comment: just how desirable is it to have your PDFs under version control? I tend to v-c just the source files.

comment footnotes - on the bottom except on last page of chapter
I suppose we should be glad they don't demand the use of Word... BTW, if ever you manage to do this, it's gonna be really ugly.
