I am writing my Ph.D. thesis with LaTeX. As my thesis requires typesetting Arabic text, I was very glad to learn that LuaLaTeX can easily handle that. The questions and knowledge with regard to LaTeX I am primarily interested in surround:

  • LuaLaTeX
  • ledmac/ledpar
  • Biblatex
  • csquotes

I use the following applications:

  • TeXShop
  • BibDesk

I work in LaTeX with the following languages:

  • English/German/Latin
  • Arabic/Persian
  • Greek
  • Syriac

comment hyphenation with languages in transliteration // forced hyphenation?
I just had the issue that \insdisc tried to hyphenate other LaTeX commands, e.g., in \insdisc{blabla \texquote{abcdefg} blabla} it tried to hyphenate \textquote which, of course, resulted in an error message. Any way to keep that from happening?

wow! what you call "crude" I'd call "simple" or even "elegant". At first, I had problems with ellipsis package, but this just led me to no longer use it.

@JavierBezos : I will see if I can do something along the lines you suggested. If there is anything I can help you with in "working those ideas out" please let me know.
