comment Implementing CGS unit system in Mathematica 9
Regarding the use of StatCoulombs in MMA, is it equal to $g^{1/2} cm^{3/2}/s$? Some comments below one doubts this. I have the same problem since on paper I would be able to cancel out StatCoulombs. However, in MMA StatCoulombs cannot be cancelled out by a combination of length, mass and seconds...?

comment Convert quoted printable aka PrintableASCII characters to UTF-8
Yesterday I found out, that the German a-Umlaut is translated to an imaginary part double-i. I removed the parameter "Math1" and obtained the correct result. Moreover, in my case the equal sign at the end of the line introduced a line wrap at column 75. Thus I changed the 2nd rule to "=\n" -> ""

Great solution. What a pity that the Import[] does not auto. convert the characters. Other languages have their function for this:-( -- btw: works with ease.

comment DateString and localization, $Language ignored
Actually, my OS regional settings are not English. I only installed Mathematica with English interface to be sure to have the same "wording" when discussing with colleagues. Strange. Every high-level language nowadays has this feature (incl. Java). Thus it is just not implemented in pure MM. Ok, there's still the possibility to make a Java call...

comment Select rows from table by keys
@kguler Your dt1 approach is what I had originally in mind. Now from your answer I know that I have to put some brackets around the first place-holder to mix #1 and # for the mapping. Thank you.

That's exactly what I was aiming for and the absolute elegant solution. I am sorry that I did not find GatherBy in the manual. Sometimes the power of MM is really amazing / overwhelming.
