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 PGFplot Dimension too large/TeX Capacity Exceeded after reduction in domain and range
But the calculations are done before they are scaled to the current graph, so this won't have any effect on the errors.

This looks like a duplicate of tex.stackexchange.com/q/23117/6984 - does the info there solve your problem?

comment Is there a macro which determines whether or not a command will produce printable output?
The distinction between commands with and without arguments is not equivalent to that between those that write to the output document and those that do not - consider \textit vs \itshape and all the analogous font-changing commands for example.

Yep, I see what you mean, but my comment does fix this. Answer now edited to include the changes described above.

Odd... your revised example still compiles well for me. It sounds like this might be solved by my earlier comment though - did you try that?

comment use the coordinates of an axis tip with pgf plot
You will see that this actually works by aligning the lower left corner of the skew graph with the lower right corner of the rectilinear one. If you prefer, you can align the ends of the respective x axes by using anchor=left of origin and (axis cs:\pgfkeysvalueof{/pgfplots/xmax}, 0).

comment \widetilde is too big and \tilde is too small — is there something between?
On second thoughts, \newcommand\Wtilde{\stackrel{\sim}{\smash{\mathcal{W}}\rule{0pt}{1.1ex}}} is better. In this implementation the spacing is entirely independent of the size of the original letter, so making the letter an argument is not a brilliant idea.

PS - a meta-comment: anyone know how I can get the @ syntax to work with Hendrik's username above? Ta.

Following @HendrikVogt at tex.stackexchange.com/q/12579/6984 : \newcommand\simcal[1]{\stackrel{\sim}{\smash{\mathcal{#1}}\rule{0pt}{1.1ex}}} lets you write $\simcal{W}$ or whatever, and you can adjust the 1.1ex to suit your spacing preferences.
