comment Converting LaTeX to HTML but keeping equations as LaTeX
Oh, this could help with my lingering issues. Thank you for all your help!

OK, this can be closed as duplicate.

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?)

@michal.h21 In the config file there, is AltlMathiI a typo, and should be AltlMathI?

@michal.h21 Thanks! When I have some time later today I will give that a try. And then it looks like this question could be closed as a duplicate. I'll vote to close rather than delete if that turns out to be the case.

@AndreCashner Is it appropriate then that I changed the tag to ubuntu?

comment Which packages come standard with Ubuntu's `texlive` package?
This list helps, thank you. I think I have what I want, using this list in combination with this reference, which tells me that the Debian/Ubuntu texlive package gives texlive-latex-recommended, texlive-fonts-recommended, texlive-latex-base (which is texlive-latex?) and texlive-base (which is texlive-basic?).

comment Using \multispan in plain tex to give a caption to an array
I have the green light to use LaTeX freely in this project now---thanks for the help.

comment Using \multispan in plain tex to give a caption to an array
But what you see in the first table is the current raw .tex output from WeBWorK. I'm just trying to tweak it and insert captions with as little alteration as possible. If my proposed changes to WeBWorK code were accepted, they would be adopted by hundreds of institutions and hundreds of thousands of students. So a good philosophy is to change as little as possible.

comment Using \multispan in plain tex to give a caption to an array
Thanks @DavidCarlisle. I'm not 100% sure yet what the WeBWorK experts will say about using elements of plain tex versus LaTeX (I've asked but only earlier today). I had whittled down a WeBWorK-produced .tex file to a MWE for posting here, so there was probably elements of amsart in use within what I cut. I'm still waiting to hear from the WeBWorK experts what they think about using more LaTeX over plain tex, but since what you see in the first table is the current WeBWorK output, I am hesitant to propose monumental changes to its code.

comment Using \multispan in plain tex to give a caption to an array
Thanks! I did process it with LaTeX. I'm trying to understand how WeBWorK processes raw input to produce the pdfs that students use. I intervened to grab the raw .tex file to play with, so that I would understand better what WeBWorK does to create it before I meddled with WeBWorK's algorithm for creating the .tex. I should have altered my local IDE to process it with plain tex for a more honest simulation. I'm awaiting to hear from the WeBWorK experts if plain tex is necessary---if not, great. Either way this may make its way into WeBWorK code.

comment Using \multispan in plain tex to give a caption to an array
@egreg I'm not 100% sure. I think that I have to consider that a hundred students might each be asking the server to generate a pdf with a hundred problems, and any efficiency gained from using plain tex is desired. I haven't checked in yet with the WeBWorK development crew though. Maybe they can green-light using less basic tex.

comment Rotating a one-page float for pdf viewing
Does this solution keep the headers at the top of the page when viewed as a portrait page? The solution I ended up with (that I just posted) does that, which was desired.

comment How to have pgfplotstable ignore rows with no entries in certain columns?
This didn't quite work. Once symbolic coords are in use, it doesn't recognize 'nan' for what it should; it thinks it's another undeclared symbolic coord. But I added 'nan' to the end of the list of symbolic coords, and restricted the domain to exclude the last coord. I'll wait and see if there's a better approach, but this answer is helpful.

comment Chemistry Equations
Note that there should be a space before the + on the right-hand side, or the package interprets the + to indicate an ion.

@Stephan That seems to do it. Do you want to post as an answer? Are you aware of any unwanted side effects this could have?

comment Smooth option sometimes produces incorrect arrow tips in PGFplots
How do I modify this so that a beginning arrow tip also points in the right direction? If I am using <-> arrows, this fixes the end arrow but not the beginning.
