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 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.

comment What is the implication of the warning in the fontspec manual with respect to babel and LuaTeX?
And you don't like the answer "Yes, but you should use polyglossia instead of babel"?

comment Tab not as extra alignment tab
@egreg: yep, that'd explain it. Thanks. Now for bonus points, why don't I need to explicitly restore the catcode?

comment Tab not as extra alignment tab
@Andrey: yes, I saw that I didn't need to but I don't fully understand why: after all, I change the catcode /before/ beginning the group. And changing the catcode /inside/ the group doesn't work! (If this is too complicated to explain in a comment feel free to say so and I can ask it as a new question...)
