comment How to decide what type of paper to use for a flyer to hand out at a tradeshow?
FYI: The lb weights (aka basis weights) are the weight of a ream of the paper before cutting it. So, for example, 20lb standard letter paper means that 500 basic sheets of it (which are 17x22" = 4 sheets) are 20lbs. That'd be silly, but usable, if all types of paper had the same basic sheet size. They don't. Index paper (for example) has 25.5x30.5" sheets, so 20 lb index would actually be lighter paper. Worse, sometimes its 1,000 sheets instead of 500. Wikipedia has details. If you can get the metric g/m^2 weights, those are sane.

comment Why do most logos 'move' from left to right?
The reasons you're giving for this seem rather hand-wavy—for example, reading direction is also top to bottom, yet up is forward.

comment Is using a portion of quoted text on a poster a derivative work?
Fair use (at least in the US) includes a lot more than educational use. See, e.g., copyright.gov/fls/fl102.html or fairuse.stanford.edu/Copyright_and_Fair_Use_Overview/chapter9 or even en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fair_use

comment Justification and hyphenation without proper time and tools?
@tohecz You missed another huge advantage: it can properly typeset mathematics, which could (should) be quite important in a computer science class.

comment is it mandatory to keep 72 dpi for web design? What if I create in 200dpi?
Minor point to clarify, that while often people elect not to store the PPI in PNG files, PNG does support storing it. AFAIK, all browsers ignore it.
