comment typing with latex
It would be helpful if you provided the error. Also, you seem to be missing a number of \s and $s, and you've misspelled documentclass and a4paper.

comment Using a custom TrueType font in spans of text
@LeoLiu I'm just using pdfTeX because of familiarity and not bothering to learn about the newer things. :) I'll look into them now, thanks.

comment Using a custom TrueType font in spans of text
@LeoLiu I'm not a TeX beginner - this just isn't something I've had to do before (and it seems like nobody ever does this). Does that linked-to article also apply to TeXLive on OSX? I'm not a fan of mucking about with packaged installation files. There's a reason I don't run Slackware anymore. :)

comment Using a custom TrueType font in spans of text
@karlhoeller Unfortunately, no, the stuff there didn't help. It's not actually selecting the font I provided - it's just complaining about a missing T5xxx.fd file, and that t.se page doesn't explain anything about generating them.

@karlhoeller That looks like it might be helpful, thanks. Why didn't that come up in my extensive searching?

comment Separating plural possessive apostrophe from closing double-quote
Thanks. For some reason the linked-to one didn't come up in my search - I figured someone would have asked it before but I had a hell of a time finding it.

comment How can I explain the meaning of LaTeX to my grandma?
Just because LaTeX was designed for technical documents doesn't mean that's all its good for. I laid out a comic book in LaTeX. (Because scripting makes things easier.)

comment Change background colour for entire document
Somewhat off topic, but the best way to change the background color of an entire document is to print it on colored paper. :)

comment How can I introduce a non-technical person to LaTeX?
+1 here as well. I used LyX to write my various academic papers back when I was still an academic and it certainly saved me a lot of grief.
