comment Any way to get neato-like node placement in a TikZ graph?
I would be very surprised to learn that this had been done. I don't know much about the algorithms involved, but I think that graphviz does a lot of work to figure out the placement of the nodes and implementing that in TeX would be quite a feat. It is possible to take the output of graphviz and feed it in to TikZ using, for example dot2tex: fauskes.net/code/dot2tex/documentation

comment How to hide LaTeX commands and keywords in a listing?
Given that this is an old question and the context is not overly clear, I'm minded to close this as a duplicate of the question that Jan links to. Any objections?

comment unicode-math and amsmath environments
I've had problems with unicode-math, 64 bit xelatex on linux, and scaleable delimiters so this may well be the same problem. My workaround was to install the 32bit version of TeXLive and use that instead (whereupon it all worked fine).

comment Split one label into many and append with a, b, c, etc
Ah, okay! Good thing I didn't go and make a fool of myself on meta.SO. Ooops, too late. I hope that your answer doesn't get made CW on the back of this ...

comment Split one label into many and append with a, b, c, etc
I took a bow at a venture and added a couple of new lines at the end of the code (your \end{document} had no newline after it) and that appears to have fixed it. I'll see if this has been reported on meta.SO.

I don't understand what's happened to your code blocks. I just went to edit your answer to put them in but the preview showed the code properly as code. That's bizarre.

comment Is there a “widetable” counterpart to “longtable”?
@richardh: Does the question that Alan linked to answer your question? If so, we'll close this one as a duplicate (just to keep the place tidy!). If not, please edit your question to clarify why that one doesn't help so that people can better focus their energies on helping you.

@Matthew: You mean that you are using coloured letters in maths as well? Only kidding. I'm still using the workaround too.

comment Using opacity in TikZ causes strange rendering in Acrobat.
@Caramdir: In that case, the question should be edited to make it clear that this is actually a question about acrobat. As I don't use and don't have acrobat, I'm not the best person to do so.

comment Using opacity in TikZ causes strange rendering in Acrobat.
@Caramdir: It wasn't clear from DaveM's comment about whether or not "Don't use acrobat" was the answer or if prettygully's fix was correct. If someone can verify that fix, then I would support editing the question so that that answer is correct! (For example, there's no mention of acrobat in the question.)
