I'm an electrical engineer with a passion for (open source) software and system identification. Linux is my work horse, MATLAB is my technical tool and LaTeX is my writing implement of choice.

comment How to draw markup language structure?
@Daniel. That's quite easy: change the defined commands: to \newcommand\open[2][]{ \tikz[remember picture,baseline=(open#2#1.base)]{\node(open#2#1){<#2>};} } (and similar for the other one). You should then be able to place the nodes using \open{i} (which makes the openi node) or \open[A]{i} which makes an openiA node. You can use the second syntax to point out ambiguities as in the second example, i.e. \open[A]{b} \open[B]{b} \close[B]{b} \close[A]{b}. Perhaps it would even possible to use LaTeX counters to do the grouping for you.

comment How do I write a recurring decimal in LaTeX?
@Random832: indeed, "1.234534545..." (so it's always: fixed part, repeating part twice and ellipsis)

comment How do I write a recurring decimal in LaTeX?
There is even another one, which is quite easy, but it takes more space: 1.233... -- 1.23434... -- 1.2345345... -- 1.234563456... -- etc.

comment How to run LaTeX from Word?
+1 for showing some version control to the rescue (I don't fully like SVN for collaboration, but SVN is still better than anything ad-hoc). However, I doubt that if LaTeX poses a problem, proper version control will work.
