I'm a mathematician working in algebra. I've been using TeX since 1987, but couldn't write my Ph.D. thesis with it. Sob!

I teach LaTeX at my university, besides the mathematics courses. I'm the author of some LaTeX packages and even of one Plain TeX package. At my site it's possible to download my book on LaTeX programming (in Italian, sorry).

Here's my motto for TeX.SX:

Pronto prontissimo son come il fulmine: sono il factotum della città. (From "Il barbiere di Siviglia", music by Gioachino Rossini, libretto by Cesare Sterbini.)

comment Set hyphenation with polyglossia
@AndrewSwann I'd say that is a bug in LuaLaTeX/polyglossia (either or both); you solve it by saying \setotherlanguage{english} before \setotherlanguage[variant=british]{english}

comment newcommand: boldface is extended to next character
@percusse I see no boldface comma. If I try \gen, with \showoutput, I see \OT1/cmr/m/n/10 , which looks like medium series.

comment How to implement a macro for normal ordering of operators?
@PacificOrion I added the trick, but also an example of why I'd not use it. In my opinion, simple unraised colons are the best.

Use \textnormal, if you want to ensure the font is upright in any context.

@PacificOrion I saw it and found no clue, as every appearance is different form any other.

comment Nested List with Counters and Flush-Left Labels
@steven_nevets You don't want that the one digit numbers are flush left, at least when the list has more than nine items. But in my opinion the lists should be the same across the document, so you have not much choice, have you?

comment Theorems and labels
@MickG No, as far as I know; Heiko introduced it as a hook for future extensions.

comment Space after comma in empheq package
This has nothing to do with empheq; in math mode, the comma is classified as punctuation, so TeX automatically adds a thin space after it.
