I'm a Mathematician working as a Staff Tutor at the Open University in Cardiff, Wales.

I use LaTeX for all of my documents- exams, handouts, etc.

I've been a LaTeX enthusiast for a number of years, but have only recently started to learn about the internals. I have a lot to learn- this site has taught me a lot and I'm looking forward to learning more.

I'm also the author of latexindent.pl available on ctan: http://www.ctan.org/pkg/latexindent

comment How to render LaTeX code without having to press return a lot of times?
It seems like the answer is: fix the errors! :) it's best practice, and furthermore is very satisfying to see a document compiled flawlessly :) of course if you'd prefer not to fix them, then you could compile on non stop mode, but the bugs that start off small might evolve into dragons

comment a column is composed of three parts
have a look at multicolumn, play with it for a while, then have a look at multirow and try to incorporate it slowly.... :) start small, and build up until you get closer :)

comment \newenvironment does not work
when you say 'green', are you describing syntax highlighting? if so, I probably won't be able to answer, but for anyone else, which editor are you using?

comment \newenvironment does not work
using \newenvironment{eqns}{\subequations\align}{\endalign\endsubequations} works...

comment Symbol: “maps isomorphically”
have a look ooalign, one of egreg's favourite tools - a tutorial can be found in \subseteq + \circ as a single symbol ("open subset") and in many answers since :)

@Mico nice idea - I might make the edit tomorrow :) Thanks also for the edit. Benjamin no worries, no need to explain - you, as the OP, choose which solution you think is most appropriate :)
