I'm an active developer for LaTeX, most notably with the package siunitx for formatting numbers and units. In my day job I work as a chemist, and so you'll see I write a number of chemistry-related LaTeX packages. I'm also a member of the LaTeX3 Project, working on improving LaTeX with the eventual aim of producing LaTeX3. To keep people up to date with my TeX work and anything else TeX-related I see, I have a blog on TeX matters. I'm also keen on helping other TeX users, and so I try to watch the various places that people go for help. I'm also on the committee of the UK TeX Users' Group. So I pop up all over the TeX world!

For the avoidance of doubt, any code of mine that I publish on http://tex.stackexchange.com/ I hereby place in the public domain to the extent governable by law. Explicitly, I place it under the CC0

comment Don't use brackets in bibliography (“1.” instead of “[1]”)
@MarkBirtwistle You could probably do it using \defbibenviornment. However, as the label would still be passed with formatting you'd have to strip it out. More importantly, you'd have to re-define everything needed for the environment: altering the label format targets that one specific piece of the design.

Email discussion has solved this: it's a map issue so I've marked as a duplicate.

Could you add an example document and either edit in or (if necessary) e-mail the log (joseph.wright@morningstar2.co.uk). Loading sansmathaccent should work fine: it certainly seems to for most users.

comment PDF Figure doesn't show the Curve
'Works for me' if I download the image (PDF) your link to and include it in a minimal file (\documentclass{article}\usepackage{graphicx}\begin{document}\includegraphics{1‌​}\end{document}) using pdfLaTeX in TeX Live 2014 (up to date today). PDFs both look OK in TeXworks and Adobe Reader (Win7).

comment How can I draw a Proton Sponge?
Perhaps make the question general by asking about fused rings? I have a solution [the core is (*6(-=*6(-=-=?(-NH_2))-?=(-NH_2)-=))] with some explanation!

As it stands this won't fly on SO, but I agree the issue belongs there.

@cfr \text will work in both modes: it's got the same behaviour in that sense as \mbox.

comment Meta-data in achemso class: journal-appropriate affiliation format
Unless the editorial office ask for changes, you really don't need to worry about this. The ACS re-typeset all accepted submissions, and so anything in 'manuscript form' is fine.

Perhaps you could expand your answer to comment on the fact this viewer seems to be Linux-only?
