revised What is the programming term for the command invoking '\' in latex?
backticks (`…`) are used to lightlight *code*, not to emphasise or quote text

comment How can I highlight certain words in minted with different colors?
I haven’t tested it but could you adapt tex.stackexchange.com/a/298554/42?

comment Can LaTeX be used to create flexible ebook typesize and pagesize, like html?
You can do it but I’m not sure if it makes a lot of sense: much of LaTeX’ strength is as a typesetting engine and you lose all that when producing an ebook: engines such as pdfLaTeX are comparable to the ebook reader and produce the display rather than the epub/mobi: they interpret the (ebook) input and render it. And they make fundamentally different trade-offs: an ebook reader engine needs to render text very quickly with limited resources, but produces sub-optimal (let’s not mince words here: terrible) layout. pdfLaTeX produces great layout but uses time-consuming algorithms for this.

Thanks, this is indeed a great clarification, and it solved my problem.

comment Rules of thumb for size of binding correction (BCOR)
Can you expand on the two techniques? I don’t really understand the second one (neither in English nor in the German original) and I cannot apply the first because I lack a sufficiently large piece of paper; in fact, when using the method you’ve described in the question, I get a binding correction of 11.5 mm (but the book didn’t lie flat since I didn’t want to fold the paper). This is about as much as the complete thickness of the bound book, contrary to Markus’ rule of thumb that it shouldn’t exceed half the thickness. What gives?

comment Mac OS Yosemite made TeXShop previews unreadably blurred
Just to clarify: this bug is not related to either TeXWorks or TeX fonts. It’s a bug in the PDF renderer in OS X Yosemite on non-Retina displays. There does not appear to be a real solution for the problem, and as of 01·2016 there’s no bug fix provided by Apple. Something that’s touted as a workaround is to disable font smoothing but this obviously doesn’t actually fix the bug, and in fact makes font display worse (font smoothing is designed to improve text display, and should be enabled). Likewise, reducing transparency is unrelated to the display of PDFs.

comment minted: how to highlight java method at class
Java ≠ Javadoc. If you want to highlight Javadoc notation strings you need to build a custom Pygments lexer for that.

comment Difficulties with Minted and UTF-8
The minted version you’re using explicitly only supports XeLaTeX and LuaTeX, not pdfLaTeX, with UTF-8. Upgrade your minted installation to change this, or switch to XeLaTeX or LuaTeX for proper Unicode support.
