comment External font with portable MiKTeX, Version 2.9
Thank you so very much! I had to run ´texhash --force --update-fndb´, then ´updmap --force´ and then ´texhash --force --update-fndb´ again, before it worked. But it was your description that put me in right direction.

comment Forward/Inverse search in my TeXstudio (2.6.2) does not work
I guess that you have either (a) a space in the file name, or (b) a space in directory name, or (c) an accented character in the file or directory name.

comment How to redefine the section symbol (§)?
@Dennis I have seen it in Danish legal literature (Norway and Denmark was a union for 400 years) and German legal literature. I am not sure, but due to German influence om Danish and Norwegian jurisprudence, I would assume that this notation stems from German tradition, and may be Roman law. But I am not sure.

comment How to redefine the section symbol (§)?
Very instructive. In Norwegian statutes, every clause starts with a §, and when we refer to two or more clauses, we write §§, i.e. see §§ 5, 6 and 8. Is there a simple way to have the macro to check if the next character is a §, and in case not insert the hard space. Actually, a nice feature for your macro would be the possibility to define an exception list, like xspace does.

comment Major problem with biblatex/biber
If biber is not running, check that the bin-folder still is in Windows search path. Also, check that biber.exe is not corrupted, by running biber --help or whatever the command line interface for biber is.

comment Yen (¥) character (\textyen) in LaTeX - proper encoding
Check that you have the line \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} in your code. If this is not working, provide a MWE in your question.

comment Improve appearance of table
@Mico Yes, it is. The previous question was on how to adjust table record (technical). This question is on typography; how to make the result prettier than the output from the technical solution. A conceptual total different questions. An answer may be: Make two different tables.

comment subsubsubparagraph
@Werner No. No legal documents need 12-13 levels. I once participated in the writing of a proposition (bill) from the Government to the Parliament (in Norway) to reform the tax law. Near 600 pages, but we only need four levels. If you really need twelve levels, you really need to rewrite your text.
