comment How can I get the thumb index correct?
+1, but: I think there's a typo in the last example. Surely the ; that follows the second argument of \ThumbIndex is not really part of how the command should be used.

comment How to add the Cover Letter with Friggeri resume?
I applaud your ambition, but perhaps you could share a little more detail -- using actual but minimal LaTeX code -- about what is preventing you from doing it.

@moewe -- No, not really. I can't remember what I was thinking a few weeks ago, but I don't think it was likely to be pretty or efficient.

comment How to add “and others” at the end of a \parencites citation?
The various \cites commands take this general form: \parencites(<multiprenote>)(<multipostnote>)[<pre>][<post>]{<entrykey-1>}...[<p‌​re>][<post>]{<entrykey-n>}. So: \parencites(and others)[3]{CurieAtoms}[1]{EinsteinRelativity}[2]{DarwinEvolution}.

comment What in Heavens is this error complaining about?
Well, that's something. I guess the question can stay closed then.

comment What in Heavens is this error complaining about?
\headding or \headdings? And is the command from lab.sty or what? jsarticle seems to suggest (p. 30) that you load the option empty, plain, headings, or myheadings somewhere/somehow, but I can't read the documentation. Do you have to pick the pagestyle via \pagestyle{headings}..?

comment indented bibliography w/out skipping a line between the items
There are many problems in this preamble, but most are a matter of what constitutes good practice and using the right package for the right job. (Most important: don't use ledmac: it is unmaintained and vastly inferior to eledmac ... and now there's reledmac, which is where all future development will occur.) But your problem is from the parskip package: don't load it if you don't want a "non-zero" parskip. (In general: don't load packages if you don't know what they are, don't drink things if you don't know what are, etc.) Also don't -- really! -- do you bibliography that way.

comment How to typeset multilingual adjacently parallel paragraphs within a page with different footnotes
@cfr -- I'm not sure I fully do either, but note how the 3,4,5 sequence appears in the two different streams. How on earth is TeX supposed to figure out where to break from Sanskrit page1 to Sanskrit page2 and English page1 to English page2 and save space for two sets of footnotes?? The goal is to avoid lots of empty whitespace since the English text is much longer than the Sanskrit. It seems impossible to me (... because it is impossible for me).

comment How to typeset multilingual adjacently parallel paragraphs within a page with different footnotes
(con't @cfr) In fact, I'd like to implement this kind of two separate input stream page layout for a translation I've been contemplating, and I think this would be far, far easier to do. But still not easy! (That's just a random example, but you get the idea.)

comment How to typeset multilingual adjacently parallel paragraphs within a page with different footnotes
@cfr -- I have yet to try out the brand new redled*. (It's on the "for fun" list right now, but that list is off-limits these days.) I suspect the answer will still be "no" since it is a totally foreign setup to the "Western" world of facing-page edition/translations, and surely at least an order of magnitude more difficult ([i] two blocks in parallel, [ii] across two pages, [iii] unevenly taking up varying amounts of space, and with [iv] their own dedicated footnote streams)! If I could implement that, I'd print up a t-shirt to that effect and wear it at least once a week!

comment What is the code for the Halmos tombstone?
Yeah, really: maybe we can have just one question about this given that it is not really a mysterious problem. I'm sure Gonzalo Medina could consolidate his answers pretty easily....

comment Arabic bibliography with biblatex
I deleted my earlier comment. This is not a viable answer. In addition to being incomplete (my earlier complaint), you have simply copied part(!!) of an existing answer. Without adding something to distinguish this from @ClintEastwood's answer, I think that this answer should be deleted.

comment Using “\citeauthor{key}.” at the end of a phrase renders repeated points
How often are you ending your sentences with et al.? And why not reword them? Otherwise, you're going to have to create a new command that is either super-clever (because it can peek ahead) or an "et al."-specific command that you'll only want to use when the citation will print et al. and end a sentence -- which sounds tedious. Easier just to remember: try not to end sentences with a reference to (the) author(s). As far as I remember, I don't think I've ever ended a sentence that way and I was never even consciously trying to avoid it....
