comment What are the most common mistakes that beginners of (La)TeX and Friends make?
@Alexis The only explanation I see is for no. 1. For example, for no. 9 you could have explained that the font should be changed in such a subscript.

Oh, I didn't realize that was the case. In this case, the original is probably faulty, too. Thank you for caring.

comment How to draw a box around something with the dimensions of something else?
This looks really great except for that the box seems to be a bit too long in the vertical dimension: The distances between the upper and lower sides of the box and the plus are noticably longer than the distances between the left and right sides. Thank you for your effort!

Hm... This sounds like an interesting approach expect that it wastes a box register.
