comment Adobe Garamond and LaTeX (Linux)
First of all, thank you very much for this very nice answer. I have not tried yet but I have already a naive question. You said: "You need to make sure that the font you like has proper math support. Garamond would qualify with a few options." What do you mean by "with a few options?" and, if you know: how can one tell LaTeX to use a given font for the main text and another one for maths? Thank you again!

Mico: I just have linux and windows but it might indeed of interest for others. @alexis: thank you.

@jonalv: yes, I have seen it and love the idea but, at the moment, it still lacks bold, if I'm not mistaken.

Edit the question to make it even clearer.

@Jörg: I was actually thinking of a full ligature support, with characters such as  (rather than Th), which Linux Libertine provides automatically.

@Jörg: I was naively thinking pdflatex might either not be compatible with those (as, with the default pdflatex font, there are no ligatures) or give the same problems as XeTeX (which, I thought, was partially due to pdf readers). Thank you for clearing that up.

@Jörg: Yes (and it's a pity), but don't I lose them in pdflatex anyway? Or is Libertine (for instance) in pdflatex giving searcheable pdf documents + ligatures? As for garamondx, I was thinking it could be possible to use Garamond Pro for the main text & that package for the maths.

Thanks a lot for these very informative remarks; they surely are helpful. Can I ask you to provide a minimal working example with newtx or how to select a font for the main text and another one for maths? By the way, I see on the newtx page that "Ntxmath can also use the maths italic font provided with the garamondx package, thus offering a garamond-alike text-with-maths combination." Concerning the problem you mention with XeLaTeX, wouldn't this alleviate the problem : tex.stackexchange.com/a/5419/1216 ?

comment How to create a figure with latex labels and handling transparency in gnuplot?
Thank you for pointing this out; it seems it also requires gnuplot 4.6.

Thank you for those font suggestions; I'll make sure to try them all. About postponing the experiments with Garamond, I will actually have some time once the thesis is completed, and before it's printed. I am just gathering in advance as much information as possible.
