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 Horizontal lines are showing up as low-resolution images
One final note: I believe the distinction between vector and bitmap images in this case is academic - in both cases the instruction is to fill a particular area of the page with a single colour. I.e., despite the publishers' software complaining about low resolution, the lines should look as intended when output at any resolution.

comment Horizontal lines are showing up as low-resolution images
Further to my previous comment: pdfimages reveals that, with the workflow as above but using ps2pdf instead of Acrobat, both fraction bars and horizontal rules are rendered as a 1x1 black image which is stretched to the required size - hence the error with resolution. I'm not sure where in the process this is introduced - the PostScript file is not very friendly to my (relatively inexperienced) eyes. I did notice, however, that when the file is compiled directly with pdflatex the lines are rendered correctly as vectors - would this be an option for you?

Re detecting the results: pdfimages may help - it will extract lines which are rendered as bitmap images for some reason but not vectors.

comment Creating Large Math Boundaries
@night owl: the \left...\right construction automatically resizes the delimiters to fit whatever's inside, so you only need one \rule to make both delimiters the right size.

comment TikZ: What affects the space between nodes placed with `below of=` syntax?
You can adjust this with inner sep and outer sep (the space added within and outside the border, respectively) or by setting a minimum width or minimum height, depending on the effect you're looking for.

comment pgfplots and figure centering
oh, I see - yes, this is a better way of demonstrating the centering than artificially broadening the y-axis label and needing to show the page margins. Thanks! Incidentally, although this is marked as experimental in the pgfplots manual, that refers to pgf 2.00: the relevant code has been incorporated into pgf 2.10 so it should be pretty generally usable, I think.
