My profession is urban planning, one of my hobbies is producing good typography with LaTeX. So far, I've authored two LaTeX packages, idxlayout and quoting. I was also the author of a custom biblatex style whose functionality is now part of core biblatex.

Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}.

comment Why are default LaTeX margins so big?
@Argo Times New Roman with its small character width is suitable for small (e.g. newspaper) columns -- it was designed for the London Times. Choosing it as the default font for A4/Letter paper documents (as Microsoft did for Word) was a very bad decision.

comment multiple citations with individual page numbers using natbib
Is it possible for you to switch to biblatex? biblatex provides "multicite" command variants that do exactly what you want (plus, it offers a natbib compatibility module to ease the transition).

While I think this is an interesting question, I'm afraid it's also off-topic.
