@Gaussler: With a one-column document, you can probably manage with just \emergystretch=.5em.

comment Appropriate \tolerance for novel
Just a note for users holding back from switching to LuaTeX/XeTeX based purely on the options available in microtype; The only thing setting them apart from pdfTeX in that regard is font expansion, which one could actually consider bad typography!

PDF is sort of unsuitable for those requirements. Instead, check out Reveal JS.

comment Multiplication by decimal numbers in TeX macro?
@David: Why LaTeX rather than Microsoft Word, most people use a rather more complete program for documents than LaTeX. ;-P

comment Plain Tex: Get cell in table to span multiple rows, and contents to be centered
I'd just like to note that I'd consider it better style to not have rules, and to left align everything.

comment Do I need XeLaTeX to compile a file which uses the unicode-math package?
@John: You might want to go instead to our chat room to ask these kinds of questions instead of using the comments section (by the way, your OP question is answered literally by just looking at the pop-up of the tag-link unicode-math, just noticed that ;-))

There's MikTeX for Windows, and TeXLive for every platform.

Yes, you need to use XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX and so you will only get PDF. You most probably have both XeTeX and LuaTeX installed already, so just execute xelatex file.tex or lualatex file.tex.

comment Plain Tex: Get cell in table to span multiple rows, and contents to be centered
@user1823664: yes, you can easily span multiple columns with \halign, or multiple rows with \valign, but having both spans in the same table can't be done with the aforementioned primitives (easily, anyway).

Hmm, should one set script and language on font loading? (\font\frmnorm = "Scheherazade:script=arabic;language=farsi")
