comment use Times new roman font in TOC when using \usepackage{tocstyle} \usetocstyle{allwithdot}
@GonzaloMedina I think that most people who use Times New Roman really want "Whatever makes my teacher/prof/boss/style department who uses Word's default setting as a style guide happy"

comment Move sidecap images to the end of the document
Man, I missed that even though I read the manual. Admittedly, I wasn't looking for it at the time, but still. Sorry to have bothered you.

comment Which packages should be loaded after hyperref instead of before?
As a note, sidecap no longer has to be loaded after hyperref (as of 2002/05/24 v1.5h according to the linked document.)

comment How do I print a beta in TeX Gyre Termes text mode?
Can you explain why you did all that 'extra' coding instead of just using \b? Also if I wanted to override the defaults there is a mode for that.

Could I now add a \newcommand{\upbeta}{β}, so I don't have to find and copy a beta each time?

On another note: egreg, you finally pushed me over the edge and made me organize my \usepackage commands into sections.

Ok, I get the beta, but how on earth do I copy and paste a smallcaps D?

Probably not; I'll just leave it italic. I must say, the pain at using upright greek is really annoying, and probably the one place that TeX really gets its rear handed to it by Word.

How would I get access to the other betas in Terms? Is that possible?

comment What is the recommended font to use for a statistical table in an academic journal?
@tohecz I believe sans-serif is normally used since you don't need your eye to flow over the text (The advantage of serifs) and a good sans-serif is more legible (Why it is used on highway signs: I can look up my citation for that data if you need)

comment Placing the un-ligatured text in the OCR layer
Which is why documents & search algorithms should be adapted to deal with this automatically.

comment Placing the un-ligatured text in the OCR layer
I strongly disagree that we need to stop using ligatures: Once you start to notice them reading text without them becomes more and more painful.

comment Output viewers for use with LaTeX
We had issues in my lab with xpdf displaying some JPEG images at very low resolution for no apparent reason when Adobe displayed them just fine. Just a warning.

comment Can we get .pfb files from .ttf or .otf files?
@PatrickGundlach I thought PDFTeX's advantage was Microtype, and XeTeXs was able to use system fonts?
