comment Rearranging whitespace in sexps
if you use xah-elisp-mode and xah-fly-keys, press m 1 ' TAB will do. m calls xah-backward-left-bracket will move cursor to left parenthesis. 1 is xah-extend-selection that select the sexp. ' is xah-reformat-lines which is like fill region. TAB is xah-elisp-complete-or-indent, it reformat whole sexp cursor is in. Am working on just need to press TAB.

if you add code, that'd benefit us all! Thanks.

comment Syntax highlighting for comments starting with specific sequence of characters
you are right. It's a poor man's method. @Stefan's answer is proper. I'd hope if he adds code.

comment Disable ido mode for write file
that means for some reason you don't have ido-minor-mode-map-entry defined. (the cdr part of that variable should be a keymap, but you got nil) What emacs version are you using? also, did you run that require ido line?

comment ^M character suddenly appearing upon opening file
does the file start with # -*- coding: utf-8-unix -*-, or, near the bottom? Or, describe-variable on require-final-newline and mode-require-final-newline. Emacs might added a newline while it still think the file is utf-8-unix.

comment Difficulty with query-replace-regexp
@AndrewVoelkel might do a separate post. Be sure to be explicit, give the search text example, the regex you used (or what keys you pressed to enter them such as literal tab), and the command you used. Focus on 1 question would be good.
