comment Help function ? sometimes doesn't show help
More often than not I use F1 (i.e. the documentation center) rather than Information. Cannot reproduce on Windows 7 V9.01. Can you reproduce it using something like Do[Information[Plot], {150}]?

comment Will custom fonts in my notebook be carried over?
I guess you will have to test how that works out. Perhaps someone with more know-how will be able to chime in.

comment How can I construct a distance table?
For some reason, on Win7 64bit and 9.01 the StringDrop part mangles the W|A output. A working alternative is: d = StringSplit[ StringDrop[ WolframAlpha[ "distance between " <> #[[1]] <> " and " <> #[[2]], {{"Result", 1}, "Plaintext"}], 0]][[1]] & /@ (c[[#]] & /@ pos)

comment Will custom fonts in my notebook be carried over?
To my knowledge fonts are not embedded in notebooks. Cannot test right now though, but using the standard fonts would be the safe alternative for sharing.

This throws several ToExpression::sntxi: Incomplete expression; more input is needed . messages here and mainly fills the table with $Failed.

Would you reopen? You clearly put a lot of effort in this answer...

So BAL->NYC != NYC->BAL etc.? And why not a zero on the diagonal?

Do you always supply the distances or do you want to get them elsewhere? If you were supplying a full distance matrix, the rest would be trivial.

comment Invisible characters being inserted into the output from FindMaximum
Your notebook throws errors: FindMaximum::nrgnum: The gradient is not a vector of real numbers at {rr} = {1.}. >> so I cannot reproduce your problem. Please make sure to provide functional code and test it in a fresh kernel session. Oh, and please add your system info (version, OS etc.).

comment Invisible characters being inserted into the output from FindMaximum
Can you perhaps post the offending code here to reproduce the problem? Did you try to copy the code to a new notebook and evaluate it there? Also, the bugs tag is only applicable for confirmed bugs.
