As a start you can look around in The LaTeX Font Catalogue for similar fonts, and maybe use the pgfornament package for drawing ornaments. (Note that you'll have to manually download the pgfornament package from the indicated link and copy to your “project folder.”) Also I've made a small solution, so you may start along this way. ...

Choose another font, eg Libertine: or load a feature file which modifies the kerning between t and u. Save the following as lm.fea or any other file name with extension .fea: languagesystem DFLT dflt; languagesystem latn dflt; feature kern { pos t u -60; } kern; and load it inside the font definition and, of course, run it with lualatex: ...

[I hope my contribution fits the format.] One of the things I like most about LaTeX is the ability to typeset really pleasing bibliographies without much effort. The most customisable solution I encountered so far is the biblatex package and I use it in all my documents where I have to cite any references. I hope you like my styling of the list of ...

The following solution is from Peter Wilson, who couldn't post this himself. A pdf of Peter's contribution may be found here. As I don't want to get reputation for his work, I promise I'll translate all reputation credited to bounties. % calconc.tex A Concrete poem typeset in Palatino by Peter Wilson \documentclass[a5paper]{memoir} \usepackage{fixltx2e} ...

This is a screenshot at very high resolution, obtained from \font\x=cmbx12 scaled 3000 \x Einleitung \bye and using the maximum zoom on my previewer As it can be clearly seen, the distance from the bar of the ‘t’ to the serif of the ‘u’ is just the same as the distance from the right stroke of the ‘u’ to the upper serif of the ‘n’. This is the whole ...

As mentioned in the comments, microtype is your friend here, and produces nicer output for the rest of the document as well. Because all of these options depend on your reference list/reference style/margin settings/font choices (which we do not have), I've listed a few options and compared them using a sample text (\lipsum) and sample reference list ...

I can't help with the first part of your question as I think that's more appropriate for a design site, but I can answer the second part, how to automatically implement your chosen design in glossaries. The plural suffix used by acronyms is given by \acrpluralsuffix. The smallcaps acronym styles (such as long-sc-short) redefine this as: ...

A new alternative is Patoline, which is still in an early development stage but the goal is to be a modern digital typesetting system. As for the LaTeX compatibility one can describe the Patoline compiler as Obviously, a related (but much smaller) project is the Patoline compiler, which compiles a mixed Wiki/LaTeX/Ocaml syntax into a variety of output ...

If you use Zozzle more than once or twice it is good practice to define a macro for it. In his book Bringhurst advises to space out small caps a little. This can easily be done using the microtype package. To match the font of your screenshot I loaded newtxtext. \documentclass[a5paper]{article} \usepackage{newtxtext} ...

Someone is working on implementing TeX formatting algorithm using Pango/Cairo here: Pango-Cairo Typesetting I kind of like where this project is headed - it could prove to be much more flexible in terms of what can be done and how easily it can be done by using newer technologies like Pango/Cairo for typesetting, but not building upon inherently limited ...

Here is a solution that switches to \scriptscriptstyle instead of \scriptstyle for digits only, thanks to a code I borrowed and adapted from @egreg. Incdentally, I think that rather than using \bar, I would use \widebarfrom the mathx font (mathabx package, it doesn't exist in the basic fonts), and \widehat from the same font (the one from the basic font is ...

In my (naturally not so humble and unapologetically subjective...) opinion, the improvements brought about by \mathsmaller in the subscript and superscript position of the expression k_0^2 do not go quite far enough. Specifically, I think both the subscript 0 and the superscript 2 "squat" too low. Consider adding the instruction \mathstrut to the numerator: ...
