Many thanks for your careful proof-reading -- I'll be fixing things
up tonight, and improving the areas of confusion that you raised.
With regards to one specific question of yours,

The article is written with the ltugboat class in pdfTeX/LaTeX.
I wrote an environment with fancyvrb that saves the verbatim examples
to external files, while at the same time adding a line to a batch
file that will execute XeTeX/LaTeX on each individual file and crop
it to the right size.
So the process goes LaTeX, `bash typeset-examples.sh`, LaTeX, and
everything is performed automatically. I'm happy to publish the style
file (in fact, I'd like to make a more general package for CTAN) if
If the article is processed with XeTeX/LaTeX, the articles are
typeset directly, but you lose out on microtype, which is very
helpful in reducing overfull boxes due to the narrow columns...
All the best,
