comment How do I turn off equation auto numbering
I would strongly advise against this method, as math typeset in text-mode (ie. using $) and set in display-mode (ie. using a dedicated environment) have quite different spacing to the text above and below. On top of that, certain characters are typeset differently, as @Mico mentions, and even though \displaymath takes care of this, the spacing will remain wrong.

comment Keeping tables/figures close to where they are mentioned
As @WillRobertson mentions in this answer, graphics and tables may be too large. When resizing isn't an option, I usually combine multiple figures into page sized floats and use [p] in combination with \afterpage{\clearpage} to place multiple figures on (preferably) right pages. In my opinion, it leads to a document with greater readability.

comment What packages do people load by default in LaTeX?
Depending on taste, you may want to use [osf] instead of [sc] to get old style numerals as well as the real small caps and better kerning. I for one find old style numerals prettier and classier than lining figures in text mode (using [osf] will keep lining figures in math mode).

comment xparse regression? Unable to create environment with single optional argument
Thanks. I'll wait a few days, try again and hope that the fixed version will allow terminating optional arguments.

comment LyX Error: Could not find LaTeX command for character '' (code point 0x2009)
@nbren12 LaTeX can handle some unicode characters, but two conditions must be met: i) The document source code must be UTF-8, and ii) the unicode character in question must be mapped to a symbol in a font. The inputenc package handles this, but not all unicode characters are mapped.

Removed references to UTF-8 as they were wrong.
