comment \marginnote misalignment in \begin{split}
The problem with this is that I plan to put more than one margin note in the split, and I would like the margin notes to be spaced appropriately. Do you know how to get around this? Do I just have to put all of them before the split?

comment How to remove the top horizontal bar in fancyhdr?
I realize this question is quite old now, and this isn't exactly on topic, but I have a question regarding the use of \renewcommand. Is there any difference between what you wrote and \setlength{\headrulewidth}{0pt}?

comment Custom theorem numbering
I am interested in an extension of this behavior. Let's say I want to create a theorem with the same label as a previous theorem. I would like to display this as \begin{customthm}{\ref{oldtheorem}}\end{customthm}, but this gives me errors. How would I modify this code to achieve the desired result?

comment Upright Lowercase $\pi$
Is MathJax not activated on this website? The inline LaTeX wasn't typetset. I would have thought that inline LaTeX would be functional on, you know, a QA site for TeX . . . (I know it t works on Mathematics StackExchange and Physics StackExchange. Why not here?)

comment Upright Lowercase $\pi$
Probably, although I don't know of one off the top of my head. Mostly I've seen this (inconsistently) used on Wikipedia. Personally, I think it looks like shit, especially the i, but it makes sense that there be consistent rules to distinguish these special constants from variables named $e$, indices involving $i$, and functions named $\pi$, etc.

comment Remove Indentation for a Single Paragraph
@RyanReich You are correct, I did not even try \noindent. I just used the '\noindent' example to illustrated the kind of solution I was looking for. I did not realize it would actually work!
