comment Two conflicting packages in one document — doable?
Nevermind, I just looked at the code and saw that it does.

Does the savesym package correctly handle stuff defined by \newcommand? That is, when it saves a symbol, does it remove the fact that it is currently defined? This would be worth knowing about (and highlighting in your answer) as my strategy only works because one package doesn't use \newcommand.

What happens if you only load tengwarscript? If this is the first time that you've loaded it then you may need to install some fonts and fontmap files. I don't remember the exact steps (was a while ago that I did it), but I do remember needing to do something.

Could you add your code that doesn't work? It sounds like the problem is elsewhere as when I try a minimum document then I get no such errors (though I find that my suggestion in the previous comment doesn't work; you have to load tengwarscript first, save the definition of \Tten, and then restore it after loading \musixtex: \usepackage{tengwarscript}\let\origTten=\Tten\usepackage{musixtex}\let\Tten=\or‌​igTten).

comment Two conflicting packages in one document — doable?
I just did a bit of a basic look and could only find one command in common: \Tten. tengwarscript looks pretty good at namespacing all its internal macros (with teng@). Musixtex doesn't use that for anything specific other than to define it, so I would load musixtex first, then tengwarscript and use \ttie for the musixtex version of \Tten (since \Tten is just \let to \ttie). Of course, I may be missing something else that conflicts ...

More seriously, is it just the odd command or is it a lot that are in conflict?

The mind boggles! Are you writing out the music to the Lord of the Rings??

comment Is there a \foreach function that works in the preamble?
With regard to the grouping of \foreach, take a look at the answers to this question of mine: tex.stackexchange.com/q/15204/86

@Jake: I bow to your superior searching skills. I got the following page from Wikipedia when I searched: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:SVG_flags

comment Use node text as argument for a macro
Couldn't you split the command using \bgroup and \egroup? If you look at the code for the key matrix of nodes in the matrix library then that's what it does (according to the manual - I didn't look at the code).

comment In latex to HTML converters like latex2wp what is the alternative to eqnarray or align
@yayu: That's odd that you find a different between MathJaX and SE since SE uses MathJaX. May be worth asking what their settings are. Anyway, for Wordpress, if you use their hosting then there's no MathML plugin but if you host it yourself then you might just be in luck as I wrote one a while back (more as a proof-of-concept). Take a look at: math.ntnu.no/~stacey/Vanilla/WPMathML (it needs a couple of modifications to the WP code - just to clean up their XHTML - which is why it can't run on the WP hosts)

@Paulo: In that case, if anyone wants to do a "proof of concept" here then they should do the Brazilian flag! (I got as far as "Denmark" before I stopped looking.)

Not that I know of, but you could take an SVG rendering (say, from here: bastisoft.de/misc/flags) and convert it to TikZ.

comment Beamer alt command like visible instead of like only
Just had cause to use this and it worked just fine (though I did change the \renewcommand\Alt to \newcommand\Alt at the start before testing it).

comment LaTeX/Math jokes
@Danie: This is the first TeX-like group that I've joined and I've found it to have a good atmosphere. Serious enough that we don't get overwhelmed with silly stuff, but not so serious that we can't enjoy ourselves (for example, I note that your question has only one downvote). Your first sentence reads (to me): "Everyone here is so serious. Let's lighten up a bit!". I would have written something more neutral, such as "They say that humour is a great way to learn. So let's have some examples of TeX humour. Things like ..."
