New to TeX, LaTeX, et. al.

Also new to stackexchange.

Pls be gentle if I ask a stupid question. I'm trying to get my answers from documentation, but there is so MUCH of it!

comment Automatically convert \href URLs to citation and bibliography
That more sophisticated version looks promising, but it's not working in my setup. I'm seeing the compiler complain that \href is an undefined control sequence. Or else maybe it's something in your code that my compiler doesn't like when it sees the \href and tries the substitution.

That's understandable. Well, maybe @StephanLehmke (author of pullquote) has some thoughts to share?

Can't recall for sure, but I think maybe not.

Thanks for your comment @ChristianHupfer . I learned about pullquote from tex.stackexchange.com/questions/53073/…

I wrote that before I saw your revision. I'll try your more sophisticated version now.

comment Automatically convert \href URLs to citation and bibliography
Thanks very much, Andrew. That does seem like a great idea (it works for me in my MWE as you showed), but it seems to be conflicting with my pullquote package. When I run it in a PDF that uses pullquote, the compiler incorrectly complains about a missing $ that was inserted.

comment Broken pgfornaments with eso-pic
That fixed it. That's so interesting! Curious: what changed in the last 6-12 months for this code to require the calc package? I definitely was not using it before, and it worked fine then. Thanks for your help!

comment biblatex for idiots
Thanks @doncherry for the pointer. I'm a newbie with MML too, so I'm not quite sure how to use the blockquote markup. Could you show me?
