comment What are some efficient LaTeX fonts? (fonts that are readable at small sizes/don't take up a lot of space)
I think the question requires clarification as it completely depends on your application. Some fonts that may be very readable at small sizes may not be of the right type. For example, there may be some monospaced font (that is very readable at small size) but you wouldn't want to use that for the running text. FWIW: Usually sans seriffed fonts require less horizontal space than seriffed fonts because they lack serifs. This is one of the reasons why some authors use them in captions.

Look for y-key in the index of the TikZ/pgf manual.

comment How to put two newlines in latex
Not sure why you need it. You could use \\[\baselineskip].

comment Not enough space in table for fractions
Two suggestions. (1) Why not write 58/197 and so on? (2) All fractions are integral multiples of 1/197, so you could write everything in multiples of 1/197l this would make it easier to compare the probabilities in the same columns.

comment Aligning forest trees and getting the bounding box right
I am not sure about the caption problem. You draw the dashed lines with an overlay/remember picture, so TikZ doesn't use them when it determines the size of the bounding box. I imagine that if the dashed lines become too deep, you'll end up with problems with the caption. If you draw the braces before drawing the dashed lines, you can draw the braces without overlay/remember picture. That should avoid problems with the caption.

I don't have the prooftree package. Have you tried \qedhere just before closing the last displayed equation?

comment Showcase TeX Typography for TUG's Calendar
Looks nice. Is the picture in the public domain? (I'm asking because TUG wouldn't want to be sued...) Could you provide a direct link to the pdf output file please?

@murena I don't think this will be printed in bulk. TUG has online calendars, which people can download and print themselves.

comment how do I add line numbers to itemize environment?
@kloop You mentioned listing an algorithm, which made me think you wanted to list an algorithm. Perhaps it's better if you provide an example of the output you want.

comment Number of row in a tabular
It seems as if you're trying to reinvent some wheel. Not sure if this helps but the pgfplotstable and the datatool package provide high-level support for database table. Also see this database-related question.
