comment Beamer - compile only notes?
My slides typically may have overlays, but the speaking notes never do. I find it useful to have \documentclass[handout]\setbeameroption{show only notes} as a one-line commented out option.

comment Removing vertical space inside \maketitle
One problem with this approach is if the arguments passed to \author{} etc. are used by things other than \maketitle. You might imagine using this information in a header for example.

comment In siunitx, have \mile\per\hour be recognized as mph
This is what I was hoping for, thank you. I may implement this for kph and fps as well. I'm trying to maintain the logical connections between things like \mile, \hour, and 'mph', and just making \mph as a new odd unit doesn't exactly do that.

comment In siunitx, have \mile\per\hour be recognized as mph
Thanks for the answer, but see my comment about the xml source of these projects. I keep asking question X, and being told that I should be asking question Y instead. But I know more details of my project than I want to go into here, and I really am asking question X. If the answer to question X is that it can't be done, then I can live with that.

comment In siunitx, have \mile\per\hour be recognized as mph
Also, this project stems from xml source processed via xsltproc into tex. In theory, my xml source indicating something like 60 miles per hour could be processed into kilometers per hour, miles per second, feet per minute, etc. And so I wouldn't care to hard code a compound unit like mph. I'm trying to ask a very specific tex question, not look for workarounds.

comment In siunitx, have \mile\per\hour be recognized as mph
@karlkoeller I could; in fact that's what I'm doing for now. But that practice is inconsistent with good separation of content and presentation. Perhaps I should say: I don't expect that siunitx has a built-in way to do this. I've already combed through its documentation. I'm posting a question here in case someone knows of a more base tex macro that could be employed to recognize \mile\per\hour and treat it as an alias for something like \mph.

comment In siunitx, have \mile\per\hour be recognized as mph
@Mico To your first question, I'm not working on a scientific publication. My document projects often require use of non-SI units because of who the audience is. To the second question, is there something stopping anyone from just writing any unit abbreviation directly in the first place? Why use \si{\kilo\meter} instead of just km? Because of global control of unit formatting. That's not only something that SI unit-users want. Suppose I manage to implement this and decide to change how this particular unit should be formatted. It's about separating content from presentation.

comment Need help creating a 3D cube from a 2D set of nodes in TikZ
I see: the bits like \foreach \x in {\steppingx,\secondx,...,\dimx} don't work out right when \dimx is 1 or 0. Perhaps some conditional re-writing based on whether each dimension is 0, 1, or greater would take care of the problem.

Is this designed to work with any of the dimensions less than 2? If I try a dim 1 or 0, I get planes that extend past the intended cube.

comment TeX4HT Equation unchanged with newcommand or def command
The config file here sufffers some of the same typos as mentioned here in the comments, in case michal hasn't updated this answer. (And I'm waiting to see if michal agrees.) Additionally, this one has \AltlMathiI instead of \AltlMathI.

comment Converting LaTeX to HTML but keeping equations as LaTeX
@michal.h21 I'm still working on my issues with the document you helped with earlier (and thanks!). Not everything is working yet. But until I grouped extensions inside the Tex block, a lot more wasn't working. I think that this indicates it should be encased.

comment Converting LaTeX to HTML but keeping equations as LaTeX
I think there may be a mistake here with nesting of braces in the MathJax.Hub.Config({ block. Should the brace pair following TeX: encase the extensions as well? (but not tex2jax?)
