My name is Clemens Koppensteiner; I'm a graduate student in mathematics; I live near Chicago, though I am a citizen of Austria; my main use of (La)TeX is writing mathematical documents (and illustrating them).

Any TeX code of mine that I publish on http://tex.stackexchange.com/ I hereby place in the public domain to the extent governable by law, except when stated otherwise in the corresponding answer. Explicitly, I place it under the CC0.

comment Converting LaTeX into Unicode for email
@alfC: If you can read German you'll find more information on their official site (neo-layout.org). Also be aware that a standard English (physical) keyboard will have the right Mod3 button in the wrong location and is missing the left Mod4 button altogether.

comment Converting LaTeX into Unicode for email
@alfC: It should come pre-installed. Just go to the keyboard settings in your desktop environment and you should find it under GermanNeo 2 (or something similar). For use in the shell directly (without X running) look up in the documentation of your distribution how to change the keyboard layout.

comment Configuring vim to only check spelling in text regions
@Bernhard You don't need to use the menus. All shortcuts (and the spell-checking enhancements) should work in vim as well. You just need to remember the commands instead of being able to click on them. Personally, I use gvim, but rarely actually use the menus.

@Bernhard I don't see a reason for it not to work in vim.

comment LaTeX ignoring tabs in verbatim
@ArtB In normal text, TeX treats all whitespace (spaces, tabs, newlines) exactly the same.

comment \subseteq + \circ as a single symbol (“open subset”)
@barbarabeeton: Personally, I have never used (or seen in publication) either symbol, so I can't really help you. I wonder if mathoverflow allows these kind of questions.

comment What are the advantages of using version control (git, CVS etc) in LaTeX documents
@vonbrand: For the first point, see mpg's comment above. The other points should hold for any system, even (to some degree) RCS. Though modern system do of course have better branching/merging.
