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.)

@A.Ellett I find the question interesting enough. See the xparse implementation of your multipronged macro: just a tad easier. ;-)

From the empty line after {\frac{1}{2}}

This is always due to \par in the argument of a non \long macro.

comment Problems with acro package and greek babel?
@Aradnix I'd wait for Clemens to fix it. In the meantime you can use Mark Birtwistle's workaround.

comment Moderncv, Polyglossia and Font
I don't know what happens, but adding \normalfont after \begin{document} is a workaround.

comment LuaLaTeX, Fontspec: Wordspacing and Letterspacing
@musicman I already told you that negative letter spacing is exactly the contrary of what you should do; bigger word spacing only for small caps is something I can't understand the purpose of. Nonetheless, you seem to have discovered a bug in fontspec.

I'd move also the 2\sigma_{2,1}\sigma_{2,3}\sin(x_{1})u term to the next line.

comment Problems with acro package and greek babel?
This surely works provided also LGR is not loaded with fontenc prior to acro. Actually loading fontenc with the LGR option is not required any more for Greek. Very good as a temporary workaround.

comment Problems with acro package and greek babel?
Unrelated: \textgreek{...} is sufficient and \selectlanguage{greek} is to be removed as it just adds noise (and possible errors).

You need \selectfont after \fontsize{...}{...}
