comment Showcase of beautiful wine bottle labels made with LaTeX/TikZ and friends
@cyanide-basedfood I understand, but did it die because of taking too much cyanide-based food or because of using too much PSTricks?

Thanks. I just wanted some nice examples of non standard LaTeX applications. Hopefully, this will attract some more inspiration. (Obviously, I wouldn't want to put all labels on the calendar, but one or two should be a good idea.)

The label is very small. Would you mind providing a link to a pdf of the label please?

Is this supposed to show what harm PSTricks can do to you:-)

comment Showcase TeX Typography for TUG's Calendar
Looks nice. (I just bought a book about knot systems.) It would be nice to see a version with text in a Celtic font such as e.g. uncial.

comment Using a good non-default font
It's a difficult question that depends on the kind of document. For example, most people would argue you need a seriffed typeface for the main body of a book's text. Likewise, a sans serif is a better option for a flier. I suggest reading a good introduction to typography. Bringhurst's Elements of Typographic Style is an excellent introduction.

comment Is \\[<len>] as bad as \\ for new lines?
@barbarabeeton Another good reason for using \\[..] is when you want to override the defaul line distance inside a tabular environment.

comment Is \\[<len>] as bad as \\ for new lines?
@barbarabeeton I'd use a display for the url (you definitely want more indentation). For technical writing an unnumbered list with a single entry is also perfectly acceptable.

comment Adjusting the width of a displaymath environment
If this is for a printed article/book/thesis, I'd advise against scaling the font. Instead, I'd try to stretch/shrink the arrows based on the width of the page.
