comment biblatex for idiots
@TeXnewbie Documents similar to the first seem to exist at facultyfp.salisbury.edu/despickler/personal/Resources/… and tex.aanhet.net/rugtex/course/latexcourse.pdf, perhaps you want to put one of these links in your answer? Also, it’d be great if you could use the blockquote markup to indicate the quoted passages.

Not Unicode-related, but still my favorite obfuscation: john.doemy@pantsfoo.com – to e-mail me, remove my pants. (from Super User’s Does e-mail address obfuscation actually work?)

comment Multiple citation-keys in biblatex \parencite abbreviates authors
Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}.

Are you sure you’re looking for open source and not for something like with a liberal license, e.g. the SIL Open Font License?

comment Make all footnotes numbered subsequently, but one with a symbol
Wouldn’t it be semantically nicer to use \textdagger and something like \textasteriskcentered or one of bbding’s or pifont’s stars instead of the math mode versions?

comment Make all footnotes numbered subsequently, but one with a symbol
@pierpaolo Could you edit your question to describe this situation, with the example you just gave and optimally even with a minimal working example (MWE) with a few footnotes, each specifying what kind it should be?
