How do I transform text typed with the x-system into well-formed Esperanto with ĉapeloj?

There are several, but I usually use konvertilo from komputeko.net. It's nice because it's done entirely within the browser with JavaScript so it's quick.

Esperanto cursive writing

There is no norm, which is a problem. That problem can really only be realistically solved by avoiding cursive writing in Esperanto.

Why does Esperanto use Ĉ instead of Č?

Why "hats" (circumflexes, ˆ) instead of carons (ˇ)? If I'm not mistaken The "capped" letters come from how slavic languages are transliterated/written using the latin alphabet, so ...

Kial estu spaco antaŭ "mil" sed ne antaŭ "cent" aŭ "dek"?

If something doesn't exist then use a loanword. In scientific literature, names for things change in time even in other languages, and generally slowly migrate to a single international nomenclature. ...
