comment How can I stop content overlapping my footer?
You're going to hate me in a minute. Or find this prolem intriguing. I hope the latter! Unfortunately, it's more complicated - tables can have up to four columns. Here's the PDF and Tex for another one, with no overlapping issues but gives an idea of the sorts of layouts that are common: dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/16366/latex/… dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/16366/latex/…

comment How can I stop content overlapping my footer?
Thanks David. I'm splitting the tables manually after roughly 30 lines of content so that they should be able to fit into one column, with the trade-off being, as you spotted, that some columns would end up being short. The documents are built by site users, and there's lots of flexibility to their arrangements, so manual layouts aren't really an option, unfortunately. I looked into longtable, but didn't get very far - with this set up, table columns are all ragged right, non-justified, with wrapping text and flexible widths, which I couldn't get to work with longtable in the same way.

comment can't get lato fonts to work in texlive 2011
I was getting a missfonts.log file with a similar error to the above, and the kpsewhich command helped me find a workaround, so thanks.
