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 Length of the inner-most plain-text argument (token sequence) in a nested macro expression (via expl3)
Welcome to TeX.SX! What about \compl{A\indexset{J}}? Without knowing what arguments the macro \compl is expected to be called with, it's difficult to provide hints.

Please, avoid using the \fontspec command in the body of the document. Use \newfontfamily, instead: it's much more efficient.
