comment vertical spacing in array with double-spacing
Thanks for pointing out the smallmatrix command. However, I do want double-spacing within the array. I want to avoid the problem that as line spacing increases the space above each line gets bigger than the space below.

comment vertical spacing in array with double-spacing
Ah, thank you for the explanation. I see the logic behind equal line spacing in arrays, and for leaving enough room for a bracketed capital like (A). However, there still seems to be an inordinate amount of space above when the line spacing is large. For example, try the following: \renewcommand\arraystretch{4} $\left\{ \begin{array}{c}(Aq) \\ (Aq) \end{array} \right\}$ Is there a simple way to decrease the space above the array lines without affecting the space below? The best I've come up with is raising each line with \raisebox.

Thanks, I tried this as well. It's a good way of obscuring the problem (by condensing everything vertically), but the underlying asymmetry is still there. Specifically, there is still more space above the text than below it. By comparison, \renewcommand\arraystretch{1.5} makes the underlying problem more apparent.

comment Too much space before digit “1”
Would there be any way to use XeTeX or LuaLaTeX to decrease the left-side bearing of 1 in an OpenType font that doesn't support proportional numbers (e.g. Times New Roman)? It looks like it should be possible from this question, but I can't see how to do it from the fontspec docs.

comment Too much space before digit “1”
I'm choosing this as my accepted answer, since from the other answers it's clear that what I wanted to do isn't possible in a general way.
