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?

comment What are the available “documentclass” types and their uses?
@Fran Thank you for the reference hehe. My question was half a joke (because latin is not the issue here), but half a real question (because I was a little surprised). I've thought only you have forgot to rename the index title (and I've nor known babel has support for latin also neither seen the latin option).
