comment How do I create a bordered Hessian matrix in LaTeX?
I totally misread the title for this question. I was going to suggest that taffeta might be a better choice.

comment Segmenting a Bezier curve into equal lengths in tikz/pgf
Glad it's useful. Incidentally, for the filling then I would work by defining clipping areas rather than try to redraw the individual segments. It's going to be hard to draw just a segment of the bézier curves, but if you clip against the original curves then you could use the coordinates to define a wedge-shaped segment that you fill with your shading and due to the clipping it will look as though you've just filled the area you want.

comment Segmenting a Bezier curve into equal lengths in tikz/pgf
Bezier curves are not parametrised by arc length. One way to achieve this would be to use a decoration that marks the curve at suitable intervals with coordinates (then afterwards join those coordinates).

comment tikzmark and xelatex
For your example code then you wouldn't need \pgfmark inside the node as you could give a name to the node and use that instead. \tikzmark and \pgfmark shouldn't be used inside an existing tikzpicture. I wrote the \subnode command to avoid this problem since lots of people seemed to insist on using \tikzmark inside a tikzpicture!

comment How to write a calligraphic letter with a check hat?
I think that this answer was perfectly fine as it was when I saw it, not every question or answer needs a MWE. This one is so straightforward that a MWE is overkill. Also, answers in comments are not answers so the fact that someone posted a solution in a comment (and let's note it was only partial!) does not mean that no-one can post a proper answer. I added a little extra to hopefully satisfy those not happy with this. Welcome to the site, Carlos, and I hope that in future we can remedy this unfortunate first impression. We pride ourselves on being the friendliest StackExchange site.
