A Canadian geek, finishing off a chemistry degree. I typically hang around TeX.SX as I like the community and learn things by reading the questions. I'm also active on RPG.SX and History.SX.

comment Upright Greek font fitting to Computer Modern
I've looked at this a fair bit, and your best bet is to move fonts; here is a question on the same topic I asked a while back.

comment Crawler Resistance Email Address
Why not use something like inkscape to make an SVG or Postscript image of your email, then insert that? It would be a vector graphic, and thus no pixilation, but still be an image.

@doncherry I actually subscribed to {best-practices} for a long time, but most of the stuff was either over my head or esoteric.

comment How do I tell which version of a command to use?
@texenthusiast Those both seems more general; I'm looking at commands I'd likely see in old documents (like \bf) that I shouldn't copy to a modern document, and if there is a general table of old vs new versions or such.

So I'm hearing there is no rule of thumb to tell if I should be looking on TeX.SX to see if there is a newer version of that command?

All of those have questions on them already; I was hoping for a more general method (All switch type commands have been replaced by macro type, for example)

comment Does it matter if I use \textit or \it, \bfseries or \bf, etc
@JosephWright Well, you want to use \emph{} when you want to emphasis something. If you need something italic for another reason (Such as convention) then \textit{} (Or a semantic wrapper around \textit{} ) would be better, right?

comment Holiday contest! Drawing a picture of Krampus for Yule
@DavidCarlisle So did you use a tool to convert that to TeX or did you remake the image by hand or what?
