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.

comment Why do different fonts have different point sizes?
@DavidCarlisle Ok. Currently, it is a "possible answer". If I get a more rigurously or correct answer, I will put it as an answer.

comment Why do different fonts have different point sizes?
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?

@cmhughes Yes, you're right. Your solution fits perfectly with my described problem. Sorry for not answering you. I've not seen your last comment!

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).

Thanks egreg. What is the difference between \RequirePackage and \usepackage? I've read they are synonyms, but, really synonyms? Why two commands with same meaning?

I don't know the command \newif :) I tried with counters and a classical if/else but the yours is far better elegant.

Perhaps, to improve efficiency, you could add an else statement to step the counter only one time, because thereafter isn't important the value of the counter.

comment splitbib and table of contents
The problem in tex.stackexchange.com/questions/70118/… is that a new page for each category is created, included the first category (and thus, the "References" title keeps alone in a separate page).

But I think natbib doesn't work without BibTeX.

comment Is a PDF output from a LaTeX document, a “derived work” from the LPPL standard packages?
A modification is any derivate work (definitions section). Thus, LPPL concerns my question. But you have reason. NO. But not for your reasons, but because an automatic process of a work is a reproduction, and thus, the same legal status (copyright and license) of the original work. Thus, a PDF output has the copyright and license my source code has. Thus, the LPPL of the packages don't apply to my source code, neither its PDF output.

comment Is a PDF output from a LaTeX document, a “derived work” from the LPPL standard packages?
This I have learned a few minutes ago: an "automatic or mechanic" transformation of a work, isn't a derivate work, but a reproduction of this work (it depends on the country, but more or less this is the idea). Moreover, a reproduction of a work has the copyright of the original work, and thus, you can use/modify/distribute it with the same conditions as the original work.

I understand. I search for other sources to solve my question. Thank you very much.

It's better to move this question to meta.tex.stackexchange.com ? Although here more users participate.
