A computer scientist at heart with a conviction for deduction.

I'm a poor mathematician but pretty decent with TeX. Let me return the favor!

TeX.SE rules.

Check out my blog over on @GitHub! It has (or will have) a lot of good resources:

  • StackExchange markdown reference (to link; things like explicit syntax highlighting and a short rundown of markdown)
  • Recommended TeX resources and editors

Insanely curious, slightly snarky, and a little absent-minded.

I did a dumb. I didn't re-byte-compile my init file.

comment How many keyboard shortcuts are in Emacs?
There is simply no way to count them reliably. It's not hard to imagine that any editor worth professional usage will support adding shortcuts.

comment How can I fold arbitrary tags with nxml-mode?
Try it out with transform.xsl --- particularly the xsl:for-each on line 11 (but interestingly not the xsl:for-each on line 43).

comment How can I customize the background color for the active window in emacs?
@lawlist I discovered the active modeline group a little over a week ago---it's very helpful, but perhaps I'm just extremely unobservant :)

comment How can I fold arbitrary tags with nxml-mode?
@lawlist The problem with that—near as I can figure with classical regular expressions—is that regular expressions cannot really handle nested things. That said, xsl:.* should cover everything I would like nested, although the ability to define a list of such tags to fold would be ideal.
