comment Tip on how to make a visually good table
It is entirely unimportant, but reading each row as a three bit number with the given ordering (heat, exhaust, outdoor), and taking 'Y' as a '1' and 'blank' as '0', case 1 has a value of 2, case 2 has a value of 1, and so on (cases 3, 4 and 7 have the "correct" value). With the ordering (heat, outdoor, exhaust) each case will have the "correct" value. Note that this only applies if the entries on the table are to be interpreted as yes/no. I also would change the Y for a $\bullet$.

comment Missing font in ubuntu (SimSun)
Windows: search for file SimSun.ttf with the windows explorer (is this how it is called?). Or, alternatively, download the file from the internet as Malipivo says. The $HOME/.fonts part refers to the Ubuntu installation. In Ubuntu, open the folder explorer, go to your home folder, and on the View menu check the Show hidden files option. Then you can acces the .fonts directory and copy SimSun.ttf here.

comment Missing font in ubuntu (SimSun)
You can copy any font file that you have access to to your $HOME/.fonts directory. XeLaTeX will find any fonts in there.

comment Why xeCJK cannot work?
From the errors it seems that you are using latex. You should use xelatex instead.

comment Two-columns, 10pt bibliography / specific pages only, in a one-column, 12pt text body
@NilsL Thanks for pointing out the possible problems of my "solution". I don't know much (if anything) of TeX output routine and wasn't fully aware of the difference between source and output.

comment Two-columns, 10pt bibliography / specific pages only, in a one-column, 12pt text body
You can add the \small command just before the bibliography, followed by \normalsize at the end of the bibliography. Or alternatively use the \fontsize{10pt}{12pt}\selectfont combo, where the first size is the font size and the second is the baseline skip.

comment typesetting in the style of Turing's famous “ON COMPUTABLE NUMBERS”
@GonzaloMedina It seems to me that the font used is not Times. My guess is that, being the document scanned, the font properties are filled in the with default system font values (times for serif, helvetica for sans serif, courier for monospaced). I would follow Mars advice to identify the font...

comment Versioning for each compiling
if you want to keep track of changes, my recommendation is to use a version control system (git, mercurial, bazaar...)

comment Beamer: Having more than one bibliography
BibTeX generates a .bbl with a \bibitem for each reference. Each \bibitem can be pasted directly into a .tex file, inside a thebibliography environment. This option requires manual copy and paste, though :)

comment Figure caption runs off page
As far as i recall, totalheight will scale the figure (keeping the aspect ratio). I think that you could specify both width and height using both options at the same time, and the image aspect ratio will change. There is also the scale option which can be useful in your case.

comment Figure caption runs off page
you can tweak the size of the included graphics with totalheight or width options, for example \includegraphics[totalheight=17cm] \includegraphics[width=\textwidth]. Any of these two commands will keep the aspect ratio of the figure.

comment Type Chinese in TeX compiled with LaTeX
you actually want to launch xelatex command instead of latex (don't know how you do that on emacs, but on the command line is xelatex mydoc)
