comment How do I display pi in LaTeX like Don?
I wonder if there is a way to make this look more "3D", i.e., making it look like an infinite row of numbers vanishing at the horizon?

comment Future of TeX and LaTeX
@barbarabeeton: I just looked at the presentation, which seems interesting and ambitious. But to be honest, slide 7 scares me: "About 100,000 lines of code, half of it comment(ary)", and "Currently implemented as one C file, two header files".

+1 for adding in some best practices. It's probably good to explain what you did though. For example, why did you use booktabs instead?

Sadly there is no mathjax at tex.stackexchange. Replaced $\pi$ by π.

Adding a \bigskip before \\ on your first line may be what you want. Alternatively you can use \vspace{2cm} if you want to precisely choose how much space should be in between. Yet another alternative is to place the tabular in a \begin{center}/\end{center} environment, which centers the table but also adds some appropriate space.

comment Forbid page break after the title in mdframed
@AndrewSwann: The value x for needspace has to be large enough so that the lines of the title + the first line of the contents is covered. On the one hand, I have mdframes with titles that take two lines, and that have contents that sometimes start with (display) equations. On the other hand, I have mdframes which have a title that fits on one line, and contents that fits on another. Setting x too low means breaking the first case, setting x too high leaves too much whitespace on the previous page. In my case, there is no value for x for which neither situation happens.

comment Forbid page break after the title in mdframed
@Bordaigorl: this is true but for large documents (I'm working on ~700 pages), this is quite tedious and not very robust. My current best solution is to not use mdframed's title at all, and manually insert the title instead (in my own environment) and put a \nobreak after the title. This works well.

Thanks, David. I was hoping you in particular could help with this. You're right, I missed one additional line in the MWE. I've updated it and added a screenshot. Could you have another look if you have time? Much appreciated!
