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.)

@user1134241 You may try abc\centerline{def}ghi to see what I mean.

comment “Corrupted NFSS Tables” Using `otftotfm` and Fontenc
You don't have fontspec; are you meaning fontenc? I'd say \usepackage[T1,EL]{fontenc} and then define a small package crimson.sty with the needed font declarations.

I'd definitely use \centering\makebox[\textwidth]{...}; \centerline may give some surprises you surely are aware of. ;-)

You might try with \DeclareFontSubstitution{EL}{Crimson}{m}{n} adding also \DeclareErrorFont{EL}{Crimson}{m}{n}{10}

comment Using Greek Letters
\(\rho\) is the right thing: it's a math symbol and requires math mode. LaTeX experts will probably use $\rho$.

comment Problems with centering
+1, but you probably want to change \bf into \bfseries: as you can see, the text is not in sans serif type. However, I think that \color{...} is preferable when the text to typeset is complex.

Use \color{RoyalBlue4} (only one argument) instead of \textcolor.

With the enumitem package just say \setlist[enumerate,1]{start=0}

comment Execute command stored in aux file
@McGafter You can't do that: if the file is open for writing, you can't (reliably) read from it.
