comment bitmap inclusion with latex->dvi failing
@JosephWright I added the log. I don't see a .bb file on either my system (where it works) or hers (where it doesn't).

comment bitmap inclusion with latex->dvi failing
@JosephWright Why does the bitmap inclusion work for me on my machine with latex mwe.tex, but not for her on hers with the same command? I've always thought bmp was supported with tex->dvi->ps->pdf. But this answer omits bmp; was I wrong or is that new?

comment Is there a right way to provide an empty operand to an equals sign?
@GustavoMezzetti OK, it's not an image inclusion though. It's something too complicated to get into here involving another application that uses LaTeX. But LaTeX is just a tool being used by this other application. It's too much to get into, but it's something I just cannot include inside the math mode delimiters.

comment Is there a right way to provide an empty operand to an equals sign?
I'm sorry for the confusion I caused in OP. This is not about abutting some text, like the word "something". I was just trying to represent a generic object. The "something" might be say an image inclusion. I did say something that cannot be rendered in math mode. I am counting a \text{} as something that can be rendered within math mode.

comment Is there a right way to provide an empty operand to an equals sign?
@Sigur It's not text. One example might be an image file inclusion. I just am trying to keep it simple with "something".

Also, when something is just the word "something", and so therefore insertible within the math mode, then $x={}$something seems to agree with $x=\text{something}$ whereas $x=$ something does not.

@AboAmmar But there is still a slight difference between $x=$ something and $x={}$something. Is it a sure thing that the former is better? To my understanding the latter is actually balancing space around the equals sign better.

comment Is there a right way to provide an empty operand to an equals sign?
OK, so it's $x=$ something and definitely not $x=$something. I had some automated LaTeX stuff going on where the space after closing math mode was not automatically generated. It looked bad, so that's when I started putting empty right operands in there. But it turns out I just need a space character after closing math mode.

comment put \item's in minipage
@Bernard No, unless I'm not explaining myself well. If you load enumitem and make an enumerate list with an item that extends to a second line, the option itemindent=1.2em simulates what I mean (but only for single digit enumerated items).

comment put \item's in minipage
@Bernard I mean so that when an item moves on to a second line, the second line starts left flush with the item label.

@Bernard Thanks, the tasks package is great. Is it there an easy option to get runin style tasks? I don't see it in the documentation. But perhaps if exsheets is loaded too?

comment put \item's in minipage
I need its usage to be \item This is my item, not \item{This is my item}. It looks like \paritem has to work in the latter way, to pass its argument to the \parbox.

comment put \item's in minipage
@Bernard Without getting into detail, I can't use something that's not part of the standard distributions. Also I'm looking for the functionality of your \paritem, but I need it to be used as \item is used, without requirement of braces.

comment Creative Commons logo
There is value in finding a way to do this so that there is no dependency on any image files at all. The ccicons package and some tikz should work. However, it's not clear if doing something like that would violate the license for using CC icons in the first place, which seems to say that you have to use image files downloaded from their site.

comment Getting superscripts in math mode without the ^ character
@ChristianHupfer But mathjax is a recognized tag at this site, as you can see. So is that really true? In any case, it is not necessarily a MathJax question. If there exists a LaTeX command like, say, \mathsuperscript{}, then that would answer my question here. I'd move on to see if MathJAx supports it.

comment Can I connect the end of an \addplot to the beginning of the next \addplot?
Thanks for this answer. I decided not to go this route because I didn't want to take care about how much to (anti)-shorten with each such connection.

comment Can I connect the end of an \addplot to the beginning of the next \addplot?
@jpayansomet This is just an minimal working example. I am looking for a universal way to bridge these curve segments, without refining the domains further. There are too many segments in my actual project to investigate exploring all of the domains like this.

comment spacing in description with items wrapped in minipage
@CarlosViegas I mean column breaking or page breaking. So the whole item, which may contain say one to five lines, never requires you to move to a new column or page to read it through. These items are textbook exercises, and even though this will be aesthetically less pleasing, it's practical for students who sometimes fail to realize there is more to the item at the top of the next page/column.

comment spacing in description with items wrapped in minipage
I've noted that removing the top-alignment [t] from the minipages clears up the extra space at the top, but there is still missing space under each item. Also, I'd like to understand why removing the [t] clears the space at the top.

Yes, I can write the xsl to use auxmulticols. Thanks for the answer.
