comment Make specific author bold using biblatex
Interesting feature, indeed! Hope they also did something on the performance issues of biber, which recently made me to switch back to bibtex8.

comment Custom format file: How to automate the generation of the “precompiled preamble” whenever one of the files that are used there are changed
@Julia: Yes, for comprehensibility, the makefile works for a single document only that here is called main.tex. You can easily adapt it by searching and replacing all occurrences of main with mydocumentname. It would also be possible to generalize it that it works for arbitrary document names, which would also make (sic!) it possible to manage more than one document inside the same directory.

comment Lyx: Can't change page margin
Maybe it depends on the document class (respectively the LyX layout)? Another reason might be the a package is missing. IIRC, LyX relies on the gemetry package for adjustable margins. Try to do a reconfigure and check the log, if geometry was found.

comment Why does biber increase compilation time of pdflatex runs dramatically (factor 2.8!!)?
@PLK: _"and make sure it does not return anything greater than 1.17", well it does: It returns 1.18. So what to do now?

comment Beautiful table samples
Kind of nice, but I am not sure I visually appreciate it over the zebra-striping. My biggest concern – and this is a general issue I have with most "good rules" – is space efficiency. Bringhurst, Tufte and so on apparently address book writers with no page limit, which is only one very specific class of documents. For many other classes the data/space ratio is of higher relevance than the data/ink ratio – vertical lines (I found then ugly as well) are often used to achieve some legibility with very narrow columns.

comment What is the largest work that has been published using LaTeX?
I somewhere read that Deutsche Bahn has employed TeX/LaTex to typeset their time tables for decades. Maybe they also use (well, used, don't know if this thing is still available in paper) it to typeset the printed railway guide ("Kursbuch")? I remember these things only from the 80s, but they consisted of several thousand densely printed pages.
