comment What is the LaTeX command for “em dash” (—)?
This is not a LaTeX command and it doesn't work universally: scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/page.php?item_id=xetex_faq#ligs

comment Push a block of lines to the right margin
Thanks Peter. Initially I tried something very similar to your tabular solution, but used flushleft instead of tabular. That didn't work. Could you explain the difference between tabular and flushleft in this regard?

comment Is there any package to automatically select font size and margins to optimize pages?
Widows and orphans are defined in terms of paragraphs. I don't care about paragraphs per se. I'll try to rephrase the question a bit. Suppose we have some text which takes n pages when formatted using the font size f and the margins m. (These are the minimum acceptable font size and margins.) Then my question is: how much can I increase the font size and the margins so that the text still fits in n pages.

comment What are the available “documentclass” types and their uses?
I still don't understand from your answer why would anyone prefer powerdot to beamer? (I'm putting the question this way because I think beamer is much more popular.) Obviously dependency on PSTricks is not a feature. Thanks in advance for explaining.
