comment Setting font in TeXstudio
@Manofzelego - Words of thanks are nice, but the tex.stackexchange way to express thanks is to "accept" the answer that works for you. See What should I do when someone answers my question? for details.

comment Why are LaTeX macros so inconsistent?
@wasteofspace - My pre-1994 cell phone was a big huge brick. It didn't have many features and was a bit hard to use. My pre-1994 computers were also big huge bricks. They didn't have many features and were also a bit hard to use.

comment Different types of ampersand symbols
I'm going to offer a different point of view: Worrying about the exact font is not the TeX/LaTeX way. You as the author should not care about such details. If you are writing an informal (non-published) document, why do you care? Thinking about those details detracts from thinking about the content (which should be your primary concern). If you are writing a document that will be published, you should not care about fonts. Worrying about those details is the job of the publisher, not the author.

comment How can I draw those arrows to describe the composition of two functions?
I was going to suggest using dot as an alternative, but sometimes dot has problems with where to put labels on edges.

comment Use label to refer to text and print it
We ran into a similar requirement for requirements. We also wanted (A) \label and \ref to "work" so we could give requirements a label and refer to them by label (typically within an inspection or test), (B) requirements, inspections, and tests to optionally appear in the table of contents, (C) automatically generated traceability tables from requirements to mechanisms used to verify/validate them, and (D) works with hyperref. We ended up with almost 1000 lines of TeX code, and that's without bidirectional traceability.

comment Citing a group of functions in a centered block
I would place the citation in the text, not the equation: "… and it is defined inductively as follows \cite{Foo}."

comment Revisiting producing structured PDFs from LaTeX
Glad to know you guys are still working on addressing the accessibility issue. BTW, I flew my rather simple idea of using the LaTeX code as written by the document author as the alt text for an equation by an unsighted mathematician colleague. He loved the idea.

comment LaTeX accessibility
@AndyClifton - One of the many beauties of TeX/LaTeX is that it separates content from appearance. As an author, I shouldn't care how things appear. Making it look nice -- that's the engine's job. Ideally, making it sound nice should also be the engine's job, including equations. In this ideal world, the engine would automagically construct a default alt-text for equations. The author should only need to get involved when that default isn't adequate.

@MartinSchröder - It's been a while since I revisited this question. I (reluctantly) accepted one of the answers a while ago. Reluctantly: To me this is not a solved problem.
