comment XeLaTeX and TikZ - how do I ensure my PDFs are using the CMYK color model?
A friend's university is providing him with access to Adobe Pro, so I could ask him to check the file for me. Turns out that due to \usepackage[cmyk]{xcolor} a CMYK PDF was created indeed. I am going to leave this question open; maybe somebody knows a reliable way check for CMYK without access to Adobe products.

comment XeLaTeX and TikZ - how do I ensure my PDFs are using the CMYK color model?
I am indeed not using colormap or mesh/color input. I set all color definitions explicitly; e.g. color=red in an \addplot command. But the question remains: how do I verify that my PDF is actually using the CMYK color model? It seems like the only realiable method to find that out is using Adobe Pro, which is not very feasible from my side (restricted by both operating system and wallet).

comment \hat and \widehat look terrible: fixing width and better positioning?
Thank you for your edit: I have just tried out your solution and noticed immediately that there is a problem when I try to use \newhat with \scriptstyle size (e.g. when in a superscript) --- the character size will go back to \displaystyle. Is there a way to fix \newhat to account for that? At the moment, I have defined \scripthat and I write \scriptstyle in every argument to \shifthat.

comment \hat and \widehat look terrible: fixing width and better positioning?
Thanks a lot for your answer. This would indeed be tedious, but the way you wrote it down it's pretty straight forward, which is good. I am going to try this later and then accept this answer (unless there is some genius alternative still in the making :) ). BTW - you should have access to this font if you use the latest TeXlive. At least that's where I got it from.

comment Long LaTeX files in Sublime Text 2
Instead of writing very long documents, you could split them into several documents (for example along sections), and then just \input them into a master-document. Also, I am using vim, and I have defined custom folding whenever e.g. <<< and >>> is encountered. I am sure sublime has something similar.

comment How give space text in math mode?
Down-voted, because a simple search on Google using a combination of “LaTeX”, “math”, and “spacing” (or alternatively “text”) generates answers to the OPs question in the first 10 hits. Furthermore, if you want to write out actual words n math mode, use \text{}.
