I'm a condensed matter physicist who, despite a decade's experience with LaTeX, still has an awful lot of TeXnical details to learn.

comment Placing \section, \subsection in the right margin of an RTL document
If you're willing to get rid of section titles entirely, or at least mark the places you want them to appear, the addendum above might help?

comment Apply formatting to outermost parentheses
An addendum, since I've just learnt a useful trick: you can define \def\Outermost#{\bgroup\afterassignment\outermost\let\@next= }, and then the string containing parentheses behaves like an ordinary argument: \Outermost{First (ab(cd)e(fg(h)i)jk)l(m(n)op)}.

comment How to write a function (piecewise) with bracket outside?
@jamaicanworm Since this is a Q&A site, for follow-up questions like this it's best to open a new question (which you can link to this one to show what you're talking about) rather than ask in comments. A partial answer, though, is that in Mico's answer below you can replace ll by whatever you want - cl sounds like it might suit?

@doncherry: thank you! I had briefly considered this, but wondered whether it was too much of a one-off special effect to be really appropriate as a package. But I'll think again...

comment Hebrew numerals
Thanks Aryeh for the clarification - I wasn't aware that gershayim can be omitted in the cases you mention. To annotate for the benefit of non-Hebrew readers who might be idly browsing this question: these two examples are "Chapter 11", where 11 = יא has no gershayim, and "23 Tishrei 5772" - today! - where 23 = כג has no gershayim but (5)772 = תשע"ב does.

comment variable-sized “such that” pipe
Ah, thank you - I had a vague recollection that this was a relatively recent feature but was mildly surprised to find I didn't need to load any packages to get this to work. That'll be why.
