You've discovered two different and unrelated issues: The language definition file for French, frenchb.ldf, makes the following definitions at begin document: \let\@footnotemarkORI\@footnotemark \def\@footnotemarkFB{\leavevmode\unskip\unkern \,\@footnotemarkORI}% This disables fnpct's own adaptions. Since fnpct has the means to set ...

Frank Liang's thesis started on the assumption that no simple set of rules for hyphenating American English can be laid down. So he started backwards: from a list of already hyphenated words, he distilled a set of patterns that, together with an algorithm based on them, fully hyphenates the 700 more common words in English and finds no wrong hyphenation ...

If you want to get the correct spacing between \fg and a word following it, you have to add an empty statement {} after it. This because the definition of \fg in frenchb.ldf resorts to the definition of \FB@fg which is \DeclareRobustCommand*{\FB@fg}{\ifdim\lastskip>\z@\unskip\fi \FBguill@spacing\guillemotright\xspace} As you ...

For a detailed explanation see this post on xetex mailing list. The author of e-tex is already aware of this and I hope it gets fixed for TeXLive 2014. Despite the existence of this engine bug, bidi package patches color and xcolor packages. so with bidi both \color and \textcolor work fine partially (i.e. if the colored text does not span more than a ...

It seems to be very logical: \og and \fg do add unbreakable spaces. So if you specify them explicitly, it considers you want to have two of them on each side. I think you also can use directly « and » in your code, provided you don't forget to add \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} (and an 8-bit font, not cm fonts). See §9 of the doc for frenchb.

This is a question of how tex interprets its input. In \og , \og followed by space, the final space is swallowed as a terminator for the command and no space is printed. In \og~ the ~ inserts a space into the output. This is similar to \og{} , \og{} followed by space, which also inserts a space: \documentclass{article} ...

I'm afraid we have different ideas about the organization of ClassicThesis. It's disputable recommending to say \include{FrontBackmatter/Titlepage} Reason 1: why putting together frontmatter and backmatter material? Just because Miede likes doing that? Reason 2: why \include, where \input would be the command of choice? Of course, reason 2 is the main ...

I've never heard about a default.sty file. It's a risk one incurs in when using templates found somewhere, which are customized in various ways and maybe refer to personal style files that are not available to the general public. Judging from the error message, you have a line \usepackage{default} that you should remove.

If you load either (i) the polyglossia package and setting polytonic greek to be the main language or (ii) the babel package with the "polutonikogreek" option, XeTeX will find a hyphenation point for the word παῖδας and thereby avoid creating an overfull line on the very first line of your MWE. (Aside: Until about a year ago, polyglossia was the preferred ...

I don't have the “Palatino Linotype” font, so I use a substitute, which requires the definition of \greekfont (one gets a suitable warning, in case this is necessary). \documentclass[12pt]{article} \usepackage[a4paper,top=2cm,bottom=1cm,left=3cm,right=3cm]{geometry} \usepackage{fontspec} \usepackage{polyglossia} \setmainfont[Ligatures=TeX]{Palatino} ...

The microtype package with the babel and kerning options fixes this: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[french]{babel} \usepackage[babel, kerning]{microtype} \RequirePackage{catoptions} \begin{document} \begin{itemize} \item Test: \item Test; \item Test? \item Test! \end{itemize} \end{document} It also fixes issues with packages such as ...
