comment I want to start using LaTeX on Mac OS X. Where do I start?
TexShop is a great IDe with a good PDF previewer (I especially liked the loupe tool which magnifies by double or triple click the text which might be helpful if you usually display the whole page (or even double page)). The BibTeX integration with BibDesk might also be a big plus. - I switched to TexMakerX some months ago and I am quite happy, as I was missing in TexShop a tree view for easier navigation in the large document. That's a big advantage of TexMakerX and it has some more very useful features. (However, it is not as leightweight as TeXShop nor is it a native OS X application).

comment How to typeset a reference to a footnote?
thanks, that sounds convincing. Does this also correspond to German typographic conventions? BTW, I'd propose to use the KOMA-script class scrartcl in the example

comment How can I use \footnotemark with a \ref argument?
thanks for reminding me. I did not forget it and I promise you, I'll get back to those questions later (in some days, maybe 2 weeks), but I'm under very high pressure at the moment and some of them require more testing and trying before I can decide what's the best solution for me. (I know there are also some answers from you.) I'm working nearly day and night to get on with my thesis and when the first draft is ready for my supervisor, I'll have more time for the "cosmetic" and more difficult LaTeX questions. Should I add this comment to the other questions as well?

comment How can I use \footnotemark with a \ref argument?
Thanks for your suggestion! I also thought about that, but just for reasons of formatting consistently, I'd prefer to use the footnotemark command (together with the refcount package, as that should make sure that if somebody should change the way footnotes are displayed (e. g. with a closing round bracket like "3)", this footnote would still be displayed correctly.

comment Small caps with CMSS?
Thanks for your comment! Is it unusual (or typographically "bad") to use small caps with Sans Serif fonts or what is the reason that they just don't exist?
