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.

comment Amusing exercise - ouroboros file - Output of TeX includes itself recursively ad infinitum
@cfr No, you don't need the =. \let\a\b and \let\a=\b are the same. I find the second easier to see at a glance what it's doing so tend to put the equals sign in place. I understand that in the Good Old Days, tokens were precious and so the = was frowned upon. Nowadays, we're gluttonous about tokens so the difference is in the mind of the beholder.

@cfr Oh, I was just helicoptering in with how to remove the \newpage from \includepdf since that was something I'd wanted to do myself. I hadn't thought about the context. Sorry.

comment Amusing exercise - ouroboros file - Output of TeX includes itself recursively ad infinitum
@cfr I find \includepdf easier when I want a full page inclusion, ie I want the PDF page as the background to the current page, possibly for further annotation. With \includegraphics then TeX complains if the graphic is larger than the available text space on the page.

\let\newpage=\relax before the \includepdf kills the new page (best be inside a group at that point).
