comment math cases package problem
@PrzemysławScherwentke cases is an amsmath envionment as well, so I don't see the point. Besides, I have yet to encounter a document that has math but no amsmath.

comment math cases package problem
Semantics mostly (I won't pretend to get the technical details right). Writing text in math mode should always imply using \text IMHO.

Using \text is better than \mbox.

comment Mac - styles apparently not installed, yet working
In TeXLive, it's probably installed by default in which case it'd be somewhere in /usr/local/texlive. kpsewhich will tell you exactly where.

comment Guidelines for typesetting fractions
I generally use \frac in display math, and \sfrac in inline math and exponens, unless the expression is very long or the result is unclear. But I suspect this may be very subjective.

Assuming the dagger isn't used for some kind of notation, of course.

comment \hat and \bar compatibility issue EDIT: It's a bug, workaround provided
I can't really provide any technical insights on this one, but I will observe that replacing \hat with \widehat seems to work, if that's an acceptable solution.

Actually, my comment above is incorrect. See tex.stackexchange.com/questions/58087/….

comment Koma Script and real 13pt
I think this is only related to the optical size of the font, not the actual size. Since Computer Modern only has fonts for the 12pt optical size, not 13pt, it will fall back to the closest optical size available (but the text should still be 13pt).

comment Hooking in before \documentclass
But that won't solve the problem, as you'd still have to read the external file before \documentclass. There's no avoiding code before \documentclass, so you might as well just put the "hook" code there.

comment Hooking in before \documentclass
Making the definitions after \documentclass is pointless; once TeX has read something it can't go back. This is why there are e.g. .aux and .toc files.
