comment How do I parse and include a custom text file
Take a look at the interpreter package. It requires LuaLaTeX but provides tools and LaTeX wrappers to do exactly what you are looking for.

comment Include PDF with OCGs
@MartinSchröder: please consider submitting the patch to LuaTeX. I think the OP is not the only one who would like to see this feature included.

@MartinSchröder: is it possible that your solution could somehow be merged into the official branch of TeX?

comment How to optimize pdf with many links and simple pages
You could probably do with one page and clever use of optional contents groups. The [ocgx](www.texdoc.net/pkg/ocgx) package might be if help here.

comment Table Management for Dummies
The point is that only few (in our company only me) need to know LaTeX to write templates. Everybody else just uses the same frontend to generate documents with up-to-date information and consistent layout.

comment Table Management for Dummies
It's build in C++. It interfaces with our instruments (using LIS), our Sharepoint server (using gSoap) and a couple of SQL databases. The information is written to temporary input files with a large \setup{key=value, ...} structure and subsequently, pdfLaTeX is called to process the information based on custom documentclasses/packages.

comment How to ensure that LaTeX-generated pdfs print correctly from print-on-demand services
@quinmars, yes this particular problem can likely be solved by replacing the offending symbols with images. But I suspect that the underlying problem is not specific to the FontAwesome symbols but of a more general nature. I would like to be able to trust that I will get the desired product when sending a LaTeX-generated pdf to the print service.

@StephanLehmke Lulu re-distilled the document for me and replaced the booklets (200 pcs). However, I would like to avoid this in the future which is difficult as Lulu can't provide a list of requirements for submitted pdfs but only guaranties successful printing if I use a different toolchain.
