comment How can I place a vertical rule between subfigures?
Yes, that does it. Latex is a dark art indeed.

I'm tempted to agree with you on that one on the grounds that I think it looks better.

comment How can I place a vertical rule between subfigures?
Yes that gives what I asked for, great. Must admit though, doesn't look as good as I'd hoped. Would it be possible to limit the rule just to the text bit (i.e. not between the pictures)? Just interested to see what it's like but I think increasing the spacing like Crissov commented might be the way to go.

comment How can I line-break a long string of numeric digits and hyphens?
For anyone reading this and wondering about the mentions of literate, I originally thought that was the cause of my problems but it has nothing to do with it. I have updated the question text to reflect this and help avoid misguided answers.

On looking into this further I find that line breaking works fine without the literate (in fact, it is better because the lines don't get quashed vertically). What I have realized is that the problem only occurs in lines consisting of only numbers and dashes. I shall update my question with some examples.

comment How to format a set of paragraphs with captions to the left of the first line
I want the caption inside the margin. If you imagine the normal textwidth then the caption and body would appear as two columns, the widths being decided by the longest caption. I'll take a look at parbox/minipage.
