comment How to refer to same footnote twice in REVTeX?
@giannis I'm not sure what you mean. Isn't TeXworks just an IDE or editor?

comment Can I replace the accents somehow?
@egreg The tiny difference in slant doesn't matter for as long as you know how to spell Erdős when writing papers ;-) (unfortunately many mathematicians still don't). Both are just fine in Hungarian. They didn't teach me vertical accents in elementary school BTW.

@masu Yes, Hungarian works fine with XeTeX. I remember I have typed some document in utf8 for use with XeTeX (though that was quite a while ago), and you can see from my name that I'm Hungarian :-)

comment Was this set with TeX?
This font is not CM, the details differ. In CM the thinnest curves are exactly on the top and bottom, in this font they're on the bottom right, top left (like Times). Also, TeX was released in 1978, so in 1980 it was likely much less popular (computers were much less popular...)

comment Can I replace the accents somehow?
The lower one looks like Times, not Times New Roman (I have both installed on a Mac and I just compared). But is the effort you are putting into this really worth it? Will the people looking at your thesis really notice the difference and if they do, will they really care?

comment Automatically generated plots with Mathematica
(Did you export the plots using the GUI? If so, that is indeed cumbersome. Use the Export command instead to automate things and gain a lot of flexibiliy...)

comment Automatically generated plots with Mathematica
... LaTeX document, and you're done! Of course it's your choice how you'll solve the problem, but I think this way of working is going to be much more efficient than what you propose (Mathematica code in LaTeX). Probably the biggest hurdle with the code-in-latex way will be that all of the snippets might depend on a fairly large set of variables (data) and functions that needs to be defined. These snippets won't be able to share Mathematica's internal state, and you'd need to make each of them load/evaluate the definitions.

comment Automatically generated plots with Mathematica
I use Mathematica to make most of my figures. I find that except for the most trivial things, like your example, it takes a considerable amount of code to generate the perfect, publication quality figure, and it will be very inconvenient for you to write and test all that Mathematica code in a LaTeX document. Exporting from Mathematica is easy and automatable: you can have a notebook which exports all figures when you run it. If you make them to size, you just need to re-run your notebook when your figure changes, and recompile your ...

comment How much time does it take to learn LaTeX?
40 pages in two days is quite a feat, putting all LaTeX-specific things aside!

comment Using 10pt fonts with the fourier package actually gives me 9.17pt
@WillAdams Yes, that's true (I noticed it), but that small difference is not a serious issue. That must be why I see 9.17 while Ulrike said fourier scales by 0.92 (not 0.917).
