comment EViews Output and Tables
You might have a look at the datatool (ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/datatool) and csvsimple (ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/csvsimple) packages, especially (given your needs) the latter.

comment Proper use of in:, \intitlepunct for @inbook entries in biblatex
It's quite extensively documented in the manual (around 4.7) but it is highly condensed.

comment How to manage large sidenotes in tufte-handout class?
+1 But really this is a document design problem and @aradnix should reconsider the design, or the text, or both: tufte assumes reasonably brief sidenotes: there is a fixed amount of space for them, and all the advantages of the class for the reader are lost in this case. If there must be a worm of text crawling over a mountain of notes, better to use footnotes, surely.

comment How can I delineate and later fill a placeholder for arbitrary text?
I don't know about the second problem. Could the first be caused by the table of contents in some way? Can you generate a MWE which exhibits the problem?

Brian -- I've edited your addition of a .bib file so that it gets written automatically via a filecontents environment. It's a convenient trick when producing MWEs for bibliography related matters.

comment Customizing the biblatex style authoryear
I think it will cause more confusion to leave it this way, actually! A MWE is a "minimal working example" -- see here: meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/228/…. Basically it's very helpful to have a "sample" document which people can play with.

@SimonBeck If you have other questions, it's better to post a fresh question, preferably with a MWE -- you can adapt my answer, I expect, to provide one.

@moewe In this case I think the unstarred version is what's needed, but I'll make an edit.

The second is Times. Not surprisingly, given mathptmx is loaded.

comment Create bibliography categories and headings based on a list
That's very possible. Sounds like \foreach must run inside a group, or something like that. I tend to use etoolbox anyway, since biblatex loades it, and that sounds like a better option; perhaps you might put that as an answer. Your code was essentially perfect!

comment Comma in the title in the latest biblatex ieee-alphabetic
You are not seeing the bug you refer to, but simply the effect of the \uspunctuation option that apparently this style uses by default. If you don't want it, just put \stdpunctuation after loading biblatex. (The illogical but tidy placement of the punctuation that you observe is correct in the US.) Your other request (the semicolon instead of the comma, which seems very odd to me indeed), is rather harder because the punctuation that is placed at this point is defined by \newunitpunct and if you change that you get semicolons all over the place. Is that what you want?
