comment How to parse a macro using babel replacements in a class file?
Actually, KeepShorthandsActive has been there for ages.

comment What is the kvoptions-patch's equivalent of \@classoptionslist?
It seems kvoptions-patch redefines \ProcessOptions to use \XK..@classoptionslist instead of \@classoptionslist. However, the LaTeX option mechanism doesn't recognize a global option if it's not explicitly declared in the package, so babel traverses \@classoptionslist to define them if necessary. Just wondering if just defining both macros will be enough.

comment Error using \ref in captions with Tufte and Babel
I'm investigating, but if you don't use shorthands in \ref you can use the package option safe=bib or safe=none.

(Note. I meant the \AtBeginDocument hook, not the aux file.)

comment Problem with babel and fontspec
Found -- fontspec formerly made sure \latinencoding was EUx after loading the .aux file, but that's not true any more. Which means now babel must be loaded before. I presume this change in fontspec will break lots of documents :-(.

comment Problem with babel and fontspec
@Bernard Yes, it works with both xe and lua, but I've realized I'm using an old release of fontspec (which has been updated recently). Perhaps something changed in the latest fontspec.

comment Biblatex Customization and Problem with Babel
@krypt Thanks. Confirmed -- both babel and babelbib are patching \Make...case. Perhaps babelbib is more 'canonical', so I'll investigate how to modify babel for them to be compatible.

comment Biblatex Customization and Problem with Babel
@dfr Of course, as far as TeX is concerned. I was speaking of biber.

comment Problem with babel and fontspec
Works fine for me (babel 3.9k). Which version are you using? Note the latest release revises the font encoding stuff, which in some cases leaded to wrong results even with pdfTeX (as explained in the manual). In fact, \latinencoding is now deprecated.

comment Biblatex Customization and Problem with Babel
@krypt After latexing this file you must process a file with biber, which creates another file. I mean the latter, the generated file.

comment Biblatex Customization and Problem with Babel
Sorry, I'm unable to use biber for win. Please, ¿could you post a MWE not requiring generating any file? After reading the biblatex code I think both this package and babel are trying to patch \Make...case in incompatible ways, but I need to confirm it.

comment Biblatex Customization and Problem with Babel
I'll have a look at it, but I first need to reinstall biblatex and related tools (biber raises on my system an error related to a dll).

It works for me, too (babel 3.9k), and the headline shows H Συσκευή Kinect. Which version of babel are you using?

comment To write Latvian in Babel
The site is ok. Long ago there were problems, but I fixed them quickly, and now Google says it's ok in a search and both in Chrome and IE things are fine-- but Firefox shwos the message, so I wonder the latter is using old data. :-(

Sometimes package writers have some weird ideas ;-) I'm working in a new version of spanish and I'll fix this bug.

comment Why \shorthandon and \shorthandoff cannot be embedded in other macros?
@egreg And with 3.8, in fact. This is one of the oldest options of babel.
