comment Using TeX for hyphenation only
Have you seen hyphenator.js? It uses the same patterns as TeX to hyphenate.

comment Vertical alignment of align* in enumerate
Right, I didn't. But now I am! ;) (It's fine, this is still a good solution and is the closest to what I'm looking for.)

comment Vertical alignment of align* in enumerate
Looks good although I am worried that the numbers will properly line up when there is more than one digit in the number (i.e., the first digit of each number will line up instead of the units digit since the numbers are left-aligned). Also, I'd like to be able to nest enumerate environments to get labels like (a), (b), (c) nested within 1., 2., 3. and it's not clear how you could adapt this to work in that case.

comment Vertical alignment of align* in enumerate
Looks good but I'd like to avoid the random -2.2em constant because it may vary with different fonts, etc. Any reason you chose that besides trial and error?

Right, sorry. Just goes to show why I shouldn't type without thinking.
