comment Coverting Latex into Word with equations, tables and figures
Could you comment a bit more on the "proofreading requirements"? The point is, if it has to be Word, well you are basically lost. It just doesn't work well. However, if it is more a "Word-like interface" that your proofreaders demand, you should really consider LyX, as described in this answer.

comment “ö ü ä ß” in Latex (Mac, German, TeXShop)
You should probably make explicit, that one must not simply copy&paste your code, but actually enter the second line (or at least the umlauts) in the file. Reason: If you copy&paste from any half-recent browser, the encoding will most probably be UTF8. As an extra complication on OS X, this will in most cases even be UTF8-NFD (decomposed form), which "looks right" on screen and in the editor, but makes pdflatex choke. All the glory details to be find here

comment “ö ü ä ß” in Latex (Mac, German, TeXShop)
Hm... IMHO, combining different encodings or being not aware of the actual encoding sound like asking for a lot of later trouble.

What is the advantage over just using utf8 encoding?

Nice library with a well crafted interface!

comment What is the closest solution to Microsoft Visio with Latex text?
The classic for this is XFig. Well, one has to get accustomed to it's 80s-unixy GUI style (you need to install an X server to run it...). But it is an extremely mature and still very powerful piece of software.

comment What are the pros and cons of using hard wrapping, and why is it so common with LaTeX?
@clemens: Well, I guess it is all just about habits :-) Your editor should be able to manage different settings for .sty files than for .tex files (not to speak about modlines), shouldn't it? BTW: I don't get the point how the argument could be reversed.

@musicman: One needs to have a certain rep (I guess it was 100) to upload images.

comment Multicol tables with images
Welcome to TeX.SX! I have edited your post a bit: Inserted the image and removed the opening. Note that the latter does not mean that we like to be rude, it's just our way to keep the Q&A comprehensive. You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format.

comment How to change white background of an included PDF to transparent
+1 for taking this up again. Looks promising, but unfortunately does now work with my OpenOffice slides. (fix-qdf: <nam>.pdf.readable.qdf: not a pdf file)

comment Design of complex table layout
Impressively little code in the end. This is an excellent example for "use the right tools for the task".

comment Listings with some notes
Look up the escapeinside option that lets you escape to LaTeX within the listing. Then (with '@' as escape character), typeset your label using \llap at the begin of a line, e.g., @\llap{\tikz\node[shape=circle]{1};}@<the real listing line>

comment Can an environment replace text within it during compilation?
The babel package provides Esperanto support, the accented characters are typeset by making ^ active: ^c becomes ĉ. Not exactly what you are looking for, but definitely less cumbersome. (Besides, bable takes also care of correct hyphenation.)

comment Querying and modifying TEXINPUTS from inside a latex file?
+1 Oh I would love to have a feature like that. It would solve so many problems in my cross-site, cross-platform and dozen-of-participants projects.

comment How to get a numbered alphabetical bibliography with (author,year) citations
@Timm: No, it should be backend=bibtex8, as biber is the default in recent versions of biblatex. It is perfectly possible to still use bibtex, but in that case highly preferrable to use the 8-bit version including the "Wolfgang" switch (bibtex8 -W) as the internal buffers of classical 7-bit bibtex are often too small.
