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 using \label causes error with htlatex when hyperref is used in TL 2013
If I add \section*{} before the equation, no error appears. By the way, the same happens with TL 2012.

comment MikTex 2.9 Serbian Cyrillic hyphenation problems
@Dragoljub Try looking at the MiKTeX wizard and its panel for enabling languages; maybe serbianc is not enabled.

comment Disable fontlock (syntax highlighting) for \newcommand
The "foo" in the argument of \chapter is bigger; that's what I was referring to.

comment Referencing enumeration items by number and name
Do you always want such references to be like "R 2 (Other One)"?

comment Disable fontlock (syntax highlighting) for \newcommand
To me, the most annoying feature is that a \chapter command in a \newcommand is formatted like it were in text.

comment Is there an \iftex4ht command, and if not, how should it be defined?
This relies on two hypotheses: that \HCode is really undefined by all packages you load and that \undefined is undefined (which it should). Possibly \ifdefined\Hcode (reversing the true and false branches) is better.

@barbarabeeton I see; I can confirm that \eqref works without problems in the example.

comment Problem with classicthesis and small caps
@HenriMenke To be honest, I don't really know what precisely the various incarnations of \ttl@a do in titlesec. I found this workaround (in a different context) and tried it with your problem. Probably @JavierBezos can explain it.

comment Vertical Spacing using \subcaption package
Wouldn't \par\bigskip be (conceptually, but not only) better?

comment Equations side-by-side, both numbers on the right
@barbarabeeton Using \tag ensures that the multiple equation number is upright and parenthesized. Of course for the references in text it's better to use \eqref.

comment How to have two adjustwidth environments starting at the same height?
It's unclear what you want to achieve. If the left text contains material that spans more than one line, the right text will appear aligned to the bottom line (or in the second page if the left text spans two pages and it would be impossible to bring it up. If the "left text" is just a label for the "right text", you're using the wrong approach.

comment Acronym generates abnormal spacing
@cgnieder It just inserts a line break point between \AC@placelabel{#1} and \AC@acl{#1}. Is it desirable?

comment Acronym generates abnormal spacing
I added a space in adipocyte development. \ac{PPARg} and no strange space appears any more. It shows again (elsewhere) when microtype is loaded. :(

@Stefano_g You can post an image; just use the interface, clicking on the "inser image" button and remove the ! that precedes the internal link. A user with enough privileges will reinstate it.
