comment When generating html, how do you specify image size?
how do I use this Latex code? (is it a one time bit that goes in the preamble? is it a macro definition that I use each time I include a graphic? does it go in the options for includegraphics?)

comment How do you suppress specific warnings generated by pdflatex?
I was using the "hbox overfull" only as an example to illustrate the kinds of warnings I wish to suppress. My question's intent was meant to cover warnings in general. Because of the questions generality maybe you could expand on the hbadness.

comment How do you suppress specific warnings generated by pdflatex?
@Kurt, I am well aware of the meaning of what warnings indicate when creating a Latex document. The type of warnings I am interested in suppressing are when I am purposefully choosing to do something despite what the warning says.

So you would put \hbadness=10000 and it applies for the rest of document? Wouldn't you have to reset it back to the default so it only suppresses warnings for one specific place of the document?

For example in Java programming language when you do something that generates a warning and you want that code to stay that way on purpose --> you can use the @SuppressWarnings("stringDescription").

hfuzz sounds like it might suppress the warning locally for the specific warning of "hbox overfull" but what about any other warning?

comment “Track changes” in LaTeX
@percusse, I can definitely see it happening where there is a student writing a paper with an adviser. The student has lots of time and the advisor has very little time. The student can spend lots of time marking his document to show the changes... and then maximize the productivity with the adviser. (but definitely it looks like it would take a lot of work)

comment “Track changes” in LaTeX
FWIW, most of the comments after gt6989b's comment SEEM to me more of a discussion about 'What is the best diff tool to use when comparing two different versions of the same latex documents?'. I have created a chat room for this topic. Would it be possible if we can continue in the chatroom? (I would definitely like to hear about the various pros and cons of using different diff tools on latex source!)

comment “Track changes” in LaTeX
This is unrelated to downvotes. I just want to understand how the changes package works. The Changes package gives you a way to manually annotate an existing document with changed, deleted, etc. Each individual changed part of the document needs to be manually identified and then manually annotated (by further changing the document)?

comment “Track changes” in LaTeX
@gt6989b, Yep I already saw the answer that talks about latexdiff (and I upvoted it). I decided to answer because latexdiff only allows you to diff between two versions... but does not help you keep track of the different versions. My answer focuses on both using diff AND keeping track of different versions.

comment When generating html, how do you specify image size?
I will check out your link. I'm only a beginner/intermediate latex user so... that answer was very complex. I have to change an env config file... i also have to compile different... right now i compile via htlatex.bat FILE.tex where htlatex.bat is from here.

Do people usually call it htlatex or tex4ht?

comment Methods to edit column order in an existing LaTeX table?
Definitely +1 for using "column edit mode" in your text editor. I think column edit mode would be faster than the awk/sed regex because it would take me at least 5 minutes to create from scratch the above regex... when column edit would be done in 2 minutes.

comment New line after paragraph?
@TEX.SE admins -->IMO this is not an exact duplicate because the linked to question solves the problem for non-standard requirements... where as this question assumes a standard document without any weird TOC requirements. Also this question has a simpler solution and is more elegant GIVEN regular TOC requirements.

comment Fast PNG embedding using pdflatex
Using pdf images instead of png lowers your compilation from 18s to 1s? Wow. I wish I had known this for the last 50 page paper I wrote ... so much time wasted on png inclusions.
