comment Recursively defined macros in TeX
Thank you! (Actually I was seriously going to use this >_> ... as part of my 'solution' for the problem that occurs when trying to calculate sums of "empty" strings, e.g. 5++5=10 or 4+3+=7. But I just found out that appending a +0 always solves that problem.)

Wow. Your answer is a nice example of what 'simple/plain' TeX can do, thank you!

comment A macro to typeset a difficult table
@Scott H. The answer is yes in both cases: it is always the exact same table, except for the numbers in it and the content of the very first cell ("NUMBERS"). So in fact just "prepending" a given first column (in fact a double column including multirows and multicolumns) and a first row would be a major step in the good direction that I have not managed to take yet.

That's so simple I never would have thought about it :-)

comment Automated overlay specification with \only and \enumerate
Wow, it works... Thank you! I don't fully understand how it works, to be honest, but I'll wait with asking questions until I finished the TeXbook.
