comment How to set a certain color (other than white) to margin areas?
Thanks, worked for me. To include the footer area, do \rule{\textwidth}{\textheight}.

comment Forward Search in Emacs for Okular not working
@giordano: Because that's how it gets embedded in the synctex data (including that strange ./ between TeX-master-directory and the relative path to the current file). The version of Okular I'm using (0.18.1) seems to be OK with "absolute path to current file", but IIRC some older versions of Evince require exactly the path that is embedded in the synctex data. I'm not sure if older versions of Okular have the same limitation. Maybe it's actually not an Okular/Evince limitation but a SyncTeX limitation. Also see tex.stackexchange.com/q/25578/6185

It's a bug in lcg v1.2, fixed in v1.3.

Thanks for the MWE. The randomness doesn't seem to be working in your MWE -- \therand is the same on the second and subsequent pages. Perhaps this is a bug in lcg and is unrelated to your answer?

comment Automatically set description list `labelwidth` based on widest label?
Thanks for updating it, but I still have some questions: Why is that stuff wrapped in a \vbox{}? What is the point of \setbox0=\hbox{\BODY}? Doesn't redefining \item affect spacing and \label? Since \BODY is used twice, what happens if \BODY contains something that has side effects (writes to the .aux file, contains \newcommand, contains \footnote, etc.)?
