If you don't want to use a different font, consider simply loading bold-extra. This is similar to the "poor man's solution" mentioned in Heiko's reply, except that it actually builds a real, true-blue bold small cap font from the Computer Modern sources, without scaling and the concomitant loss of quality. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{bold-extra} ...

Minimized MWE, because this is not related to a table header, but to the bold font used there: \documentclass{article} \makeatletter \newcommand{\ion}[2]{#1$\;$\textsc{\rmfamily\@roman{#2}}\relax} \makeatother \begin{document} \ion{He}{4} \textbf{\ion{He}{4}} \end{document} You get the wrong appearance: and a warning: LaTeX Font Warning: ...

(I run MacTeX2015 on a MacBookPro running MacOSX 10.10.3 "Yosemite".) I would load the Cambria and Calibri fonts via \setmainfont and \setsansfont instructions. The program runs equally well under XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{fontspec} \setmainfont{Cambria} \setsansfont[Scale=MatchLowercase]{Calibri} \newcommand\test{The ...

Mindful of the saying "less is more", I suggest you not make the ladder line bold; instead, get rid of most vertical lines, and the ladder line will stand out nicely by itself. I would also like to suggest you reduce the amount of horizontal whitespace (governed by the parameter \tabcolsep) but increase the amount of vertical whitespace (governed by the ...

You can use the fact that the standard fonts have a font series b (available only at fixed size, however) where digits have the same width as the medium size ones. Note that alignment should be to the right in all columns. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{graphicx} \newcommand{\bn}[1]{{\fontseries{b}\selectfont#1}} ...

You can load the package booktabs, remove the vertical lines and use something like \cmidrule[\heavyrulewidth](lr){11-11}. Additinally you can also use the S column type defined by the siunitx package to format and align the numbers. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{float} \usepackage{booktabs} \usepackage{siunitx} \begin{document} \begin{table}[h] ...

I think it's a bad idea to remove \textbf in that way, but it's an even worse idea to make all the environment boldface. The algorithm will already stick out by itself, and the boldface keywords help the reader in finding the key places. However, if you really want to follow this path, just add \bfseries\boldmath to your environment. ...
