Researcher in quantum information --- involving algebras over finite dimensional Hilbert spaces, graphs and combinatorics, and vector spaces over ℤ/pℤ.

I habitually edit and re-edit anything I write, as long as I have the time, interest, and ability. I should probably apologize for this tendency, but you will probably have to be satisfied with being warned about it instead.

comment Equation number on wrong line
Not very clean, though, when you consider that "Dissociation" is not meant to represent the product of variables D, i, s, s again, o, c, i, a, t, another i, o again, and n.

comment Is there a tool to make a complicated Table like this one (“Auswahlliste” from “Pahl/Beitz Konstruktionsmethodik”)?
There are some compromises which I made in coding this response due to my trying to work around non-obvious technicalities in TiKZ. (For the curious, look for "draw=white" in my code, and see what happens when you remove it.) Suggestions to simplify this answer are appreciated.

comment Standard form in TeX?
Use of a multiplication dot isn't even uncommon in certain places which speak English, at least among physicists and mathematicians. If the decimal point is not vertically centred, it is usually easy to distinguish from a multiplication dot. In those cases where there is risk of ambiguity, parentheses or spacing around the multiplication are often used. Because in context, it is easier to tell a centred dot from a decimal point, than a multiplication cross from the letter x.

comment How to typeset “TikZ”?
If you want to be sure that the k is italic, you might want to ensure that the T, i, and Z are upright, as in \newcommand*\TikZ{\textup{Ti\textit kZ}}.

comment Disable keyword highlighting in lstset
@jbx: Interesting. Thanks for reporting back how it worked. I wouldn't have expected there to still be a difference, especially given the image posted in Paulo's answer. Perhaps the non-keywords are being displayed in a typeface other than just \ttfamily (perhaps in a different size).

comment Make arrows inside lstlisting
Furthermore, assuming that your language uses == for the equality relation (as opp. assignment), you could use literate={=}{$\leftarrow$}{1},{==}{$=$}{1}.
