comment Urgent help with preparing a table
Have you tried something on your own? did you have a look at, e.g., the first google answer for the search latex tables?

comment Using a negative space \! to differentiate between functions and products
Instead of writing y(-x) you could either use y\times(-x) (the \times might be confudes with the cross product) or you could write -xy instead of y(-x) which is, I believe, the best option - unless, of course, you're not in a commutative algebra. I don't think readers will see the difference between y(-x) and y\!(-x).

comment Alternatives to LaTeX
Nice find! Can be a nice alternative to LaTeX for good looking automatically generated documents.

I don't have vertical bars where you have. Then MathJax does different stuff on different browsers/OS?

comment How bad for TeX is omitting braces {}, even if the result is the same?
I like this question, and I love typing without any extraneous spaces or brackets. And I have no problems reading the stuff, so people who claim that it's more readable speak for themselves, just like I speak for myself... the point is that there's probably no good answer to this question.

comment Extract all emphasized words from latex document
For \\emph{foo}, I don't know! but it's valid (La)TeX code. Oh, also how about \emph{the set $\{42\}$ is non empty}? Regexes are evil :(
