comment How to write “Java” in LaTeX
Of course when it's used as a logo, there's nothing wrong with actually including it as a vector image.

comment Automatically Detect Foreign Language for Hyphenation?
\foreignlanguage is usually used for up to a couple of words, maybe a sentence. For whole passages I'd use \selectlanguage. Cause you talking about language detection, this usually only makes sense for longer stretches of text in a particular language, not for the odd foreign word (I mean after all, is "die" English or German?). And no, I don't think such a package exists, nor would it vibe well with LaTeX since it's too unclear what it will actually do. Update the dictionary and suddenly the whole text is recognized as a different language? That's not something I'd be comfortable with.

comment How to add a forced line break inside a table cell
The \pbox solution is great. Alignment might be a bit tricky. If you run into trouble using this solution, see here tex.stackexchange.com/a/55861/13450

I totally missed that the package can already do that, too. Thanks for pointing it out!

comment How to add font commands to a pgfplotstable header cell?
Works great, even with the added code to color in the table cells! But yeah, it would be nice if there was an easier way to do this. I can imagine that setting a certain font style specifically for the header is quite a common use case in one way or another.

I honestly didn't know that mathematicians were one of the few groups of people where a major catastrophe is just another day at the office ;)

comment What are all the font styles I can use in math mode?
@doncherry Thanks! It's still just the tables others already made but in this case I at least had to stitch them together ;)

@DavidRicherby If you manage to find anything dirty in the word "coutput" then you've got much better association skills than I do. All I can think of is C++ which doesn't fulfill any definition of "sexy" that I can think of ;)

Just to be clear, I wasn't serious. I'm all for colorful language in code.

"Cumlauts"? Seriously? I mean, there might be children interested in LaTeX! I don't think their parents would approve of your German cumsounds.
