@cmhughes: Hm, I didn't see that in the post. Where was it stated?

@Werner: Sure, I've added a quick ASCII-art example of what I'm looking for.

comment Flexible/automatic alternative to multienum?
I'm using \addtolength{\plitemsep}{1em} before my inparaenum but I can't see a difference in the output. Is there something special I need to do?

comment Flexible/automatic alternative to multienum?
Do you know of any way to increase the space between items of inparaenum?

comment Flexible/automatic alternative to multienum?
Huh. Is this generally preferred over inparaenum from paralist, as Boris suggested?

comment \span as a math operator
(That's when I try to use the align* or any other amsmath environment.)

comment \span as a math operator
Seems it has more quibbles with amsmath: redefining \span gets "Missing # inserted in alignment preamble." and then a bunch of "Extra alignment tab". Perhaps this is a terrible idea after all. Suggestions on naming for a new command?

comment mathpazo + siunitx: π turns into ß
Thank you! That all makes sense, except for why mathpazo treats \pi weirdly inside mathrm in the first place in the first place...

comment mathpazo + siunitx: π turns into ß
Why does the output differ between math mode and inside the \SI command, with both siunitx and mathpazo?

comment xfrac + siunitx gives me a font warning
@Mico: I've put up more information and an example. It seems to be directly related to siunitx, rather than mathpazo or amsmath.

comment How can I allow a command to be used without braces around its argument, when the argument has an argument?
So \v{f} counts as one token? Or is it just that when \v is expanded to yield #1 it eats the {f} argument?

I'm sure I just don't understand how expansion works yet, but when I see _\v{f}, I would think that expands to _{...contents of \v...}{f}. When/how does the {f} argument replace the #1 inside of \v?

Why does _\v{f} work as a subscript instead of being interpreted as _{\v}{f}?

comment How can I float some text to the right of the first line of a paragraph?
Also, what's the point of the minipage? It seems to work without it.

Thanks! Is there a way to make it automatically adjust the width to fit its contents?

comment Is it safe to temporarily redefine \and, \or, and \not?
I also want to be able to read the source in the future, after not having look at it for a while.

Ew! But yes, I guess that would work.

Thanks for the info. Could you describe what they do, or at least refer me to somewhere I could find out?
