comment How can I draw an horizontal line of specific width in a tabular environment?
It doesn't work for me. It doesn't allow me to use paranthesis (it throws an "undefined control sequence" error). Using pdflatex throughout latexmk.

@DavidCarlisle Ok. Currently, it is a "possible answer". If I get a more rigurously or correct answer, I will put it as an answer.

Both fonts have same "size" when you compare vertical space. Arial has a bigger x-height but both ascenders (of the letter 'b') reach the same point, and the space between line is also the same; but the horizontal size is bigger in Arial than in Times, and in a line there's more Arial than Times characters.

Are you sure it is only an optical question?: s11.postimg.org/x25b9nctr/Arial_Times.png

So, if a font designer gives you some font, with an arbitrary size, and says: "this font has an standard size of 12pt", you have no other alternative as accept it, even it that size is ridicuously tiny or bigger?
