comment Introduction to LaTeX and Markup
@cmhughes That looks good, but it needs to be updated for pdflatex desperately. Also needs to explain what markup is.

Remember to accept the answer. I don't know how TexnicCenter got away with it, but this is a common problem.

If you are using Adobe Reader it locks the file; If you are on Windows switch to Sumatra PDF. I don't know what linux PDF readers lock the file, but you should try switching to a different one.

comment Embedding videos and animations
That also requires the user to have mplayer installed to that specific location. Wouldn't calling the default player for that filetype be a better option?

Mechanical Snail; Why don't you write up an example doing that?

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.
