comment Commenting out large sections
I'd second this; Most text editors have this, and emacs is great for when I'm writing lots of math. For more text-based things, TeXStudio is also good, and has a similar feature.

comment Average width of popular TeX fonts
@Mico Start with some Gutenberg or free books, then add letters to get the ratio's right? If you use a large enough sampling of books then you should average out any stylistic issues.

comment Average width of popular TeX fonts
@Seamus That shouldn't be hard to do; The ratio of the letters in all common written languages is quite well known, as web browsers use it (well, vowel:consonant ratio) to determine what language a page missing character set information is in. I'm sure you could find an academic paper around, then just construct a text with the appropriate number of each letter, then measure how long the text is.

comment old style numerals in mhchem equations
I strongly suspect that will fail if you try and use math commands, as you've just defined everything inside it to use textmode.

comment old style numerals in mhchem equations
Right, you'd have to change \mhchemoptions{mathfontcommand=foo} to change what it does in mathmode. Try what I have above.

comment How do I use TrueType Fonts with PDFTeX using otftotfm?
1) Is fontforge free? Part of LaTeX? 2) How are you installing a otf file for use with PDFTeX? I didn't think that was possible? Could I just use all otf files to avoid the issue?

comment old style numerals in mhchem equations
Sorry, can you explain why that will mess up the formula once it gets more complicated? By first instinct is to rename \ce to add the fontfamily commands to it, but I'm opening the mhchem manual now.
