comment Is it possible to generate a Hasse Diagram for a defined relation?
@R.M Indeed ! The point is that Hasse diagrams are supported by the Combinatorica package, but you need first to convert the Graph information in a suitable form, acceptable to the Combinatorica functions. Someone on this forum probably knows how to do it, without having to go through the whole documentation

comment Creating diagrams for category theory
I meant: doublestruck characters. You can find them in the Special characters palette. But the fastest way is probably to evaluate StandardCategories and then copy/paste from its output.

comment Creating diagrams for category theory
there is no palette at the moment. Will be made soon. For now, just write it with doublescripted characters or copy/paste it from one of the tutorials. Watching a webseminar from WRI now, I will be back in 2 hours. Where is the popcorn ? :-)

comment Creating diagrams for category theory
Indeed , as @Szabolcs mentioned, WildCats is a category theory package for Mathematica. I am the developer. WildCats can plot commutative (and non-commutative) categorical diagrams. But it can do much more. It can do (some) calculations in category theory, both symbolically and -when appropriate- visually using diagrams. I am preparing a more complete answer with examples, shortly

Now MathModelica has become System Modeler wolfram.com/system-modeler and it is a wonderful piece of software. Try it for free.

comment How is pattern specificity decided?
Is it really a partial order? I would argue that it is a total order, since MMA always orders patterns in some way. If it cannot determine algorithmic specificity, it uses temporal or lexicographic ordering (I think), which is another kind of specificity, after all.

comment How can I access documentation from the Workbench?
just a quick note: you do not need to be "adjacent to" a word (to call the doc center), you can be "inside" the word also.

comment Mathematica File Organization
Regardless of the quality of the answers you are going to get, I would frankly suggest you to really consider buying Workbench. After all the time, money and energy you have already invested in Mathematica, the added $145 investment in Workbench might be negligible compared to the "pain" and aggravation you describe in order to obtain state of the art package documentation and all the other features you can easily get with Workbench.

comment How to display cell groups in documentation pages
@BrettChampion Ctrl-A selects everything in a notebook. Isn't this a bit extreme in some cases? You end up opening/closing all cells in a notebook.

comment How to display cell groups in documentation pages
@MikeHoneychurch Indeed! you just have to look at the Doc pages for examples of this behaviour. There is also a WholeCellGroupOpener option in the inspector which renders all cells un editable, but you can open close any group simply by clicking on it. Good for read-only stuff.
