comment Creating stackoverflow like tags
@MartinScharrer Thanks. I agree about the \strut solution, which is clearly the simplest, so I've added some ideas about what else could be done with tikz in this context. I've also added the baseline correction.

comment Understanding a \@for loop
Right, but by hypothesis, the loop always should introduce an extra row at the end of the loop, so it's not clear to me why you shouldn't get two \\'s after the C, since you seem to get two \\'s after my version of the loop. That's what's so weird about the problem. (BTW, if you try to make the \\'s code the markup gets confused.)

comment Understanding a \@for loop
I seem to recall having looked at that code too. :-) Some more puzzles: if the extra row comes from the final \\, why isn't there a blank row between the C and D in your version of the command? Also, if you add an extra \\ after #2 in your command, you don't get an extra row.

comment Understanding a \@for loop
Thanks for your answer. I also thought that the final \\ was causing the problem, but I don't understand why the manually created version of the array, which also has the extra \\ doesn't have a fifth row. (As for your workaround, I think I prefer mine. :-))

comment Selecting main math font in LuaTeX?
From what I know it documents all that it does. But @KhaledHosny's solution is probably a better route to take.

comment Coloring digits with the listings package
@lockstep Since Clément has commented already on the linked question, I don't think it's quite a duplicate. Clément, it would be helpful if you showed how the linked solution doesn't work (and give a complete example.)
