Looking for a font that matches fontawesome's hashtag

I'm not very familiar with font, so parsing the catalogue is no substitute for trying, which would be tedious for every font. The first example would be fine if `foo`'s was more "awesome". In the second example, the hashtag is too meek. Any suggestion? \documentclass{minimal} \usepackage{f...

Government regulation/Paliamentary debates

Are there examples that show how to cite regulations, pieces of legislation, parliamentary debates in LaTeX? What entry types should I use (article, collection etc.)?

biblatex | Text Quotes

I was hoping biblatex offered a command similar to \textquote of csquote . Anyone? @MANUAL{theman, author = {John Smith}, title = {Manual}, shorttitle = {Man}, series = {S}, year = {2000}, organization = {Org} } \documentclass{article} \usepackage[english]{babel} \usepackage{csquotes} \usepackage{bi...

envbig | Envelope Size

This leaves a big gap before printing from/to. And how can I ensure it matches a 240mm×150mm envelope? \documentclass[12pt,envelope]{article} \usepackage[english]{babel} \usepackage{envbig} \from{John\\ address\\ city/state} \to{Peter\\ address\\ city/state} \begin{document} \envelope \end{document}

letter | Creating Labels Topic is solved

I wonder what is the purpose of \makelabels . Below, it adds a page after the letter with RECIPIENT in the top left corner. I was hoping I there would something like \DeclareOption{enveloppe-format} and that SENDER and RECIPIENT print where they're supposed to in that envelope format. That's 240mm×1...

letter | Proper US Format Topic is solved

I feel "Sincerly, Signature" is positioned more to the right than I'm accustomed to see. Is this the standard English letter format? \documentclass{letter} \usepackage[english]{babel} \usepackage{marvosym} %\Mobilefone %\fax %\email \usepackage{wasysym} %\phone %\DeclareOption{a4paper} \De...

Re: Macro: name scope? Topic is solved

I still don't understand. Why do you want that \baz contains unexpanded contents that is not defined? I don't see how saying that \foo is part of the overhead of \baz conveys that. In any case, I didn't mean it, and I have acknowledged this constraint: You either have to expand \foo in the process ...

Re: Macro: name scope? Topic is solved

The solution with \@temp seems to work, but I have to wrap my mind around it. The one with \global\let has not worked. The one with multiple expandafter seems to emulate \xdef , doesn't it? Meanwhile let me rephrase my goal. Let's say that \gdef\baz (not \xdef\baz ) is the public interface of a pack...

Macro: name scope? Topic is solved

The behavior of the code below for each variant of baz is as I'd expect. The one that is `not OK', however, expresses what I'm aiming for: \foo is accesible within the definition of \baz after \endgroup , but is otherwise `hidden' (in particular, it does not clash with \def\foo{Oops} defined after \...

LaTeX for limited interpreter (such as blog platforms)

Some blogs have limited support for LaTeX, but I still would rather use that than transform LaTeX output to html. Let's say this is my input: \newcommand\sub{\LaTeX} \newcommand\vrb{is} \newcommand\compl{a programming language} \sub\ \vrb\ \compl. and it can't be parsed by my blog. But this can: \La...
