@student Now that it has been mentioned, is math typesetting a requirement?

comment Alternatives to LaTeX
@barbarabeeton Thanks for pointing that out. I've never used it myself and, strangely, whether or not it was "math capable" never even crossed my mind.

Does the second option I mentioned above work for you in that case? Actually, just \begingroup might be easier..

comment Can a \newcommand Definition Contain Braces as Substitution Text?
It would help to know what you need it for. If you just want the symbol, then you could use \newcommand{\openbrace}{\{}. If you want to start a group you could use \newcommand{\openbrace}{\begingroup}

comment Vertical spaces above and below longtabu
@Qrrbrbirlbel That's a good suggestion, I didn't consider that the center environment might have something to do with it. Would you like to add an answer or should I update mine to include that option?

comment Vertical spaces above and below longtabu
No problem! Unfortunately, I don't know what specifically it is about longtabu/longtable that causes the extra spacing. I assume that it is a consequence of the ability to split a table across pages. The -17pt was simply from guess and check...I tried -15pt and it wasn't enough while -20pt was too much. I'm not sure if it's exact, but it looked close enough to me.

If it's repetitive, then quite possibly it can be programmed. It might make for an interesting question...
