comment Is this a fontspec bug or a font bug
This is a duplicate of this question: Lining numbers not working in certain fonts. When you use \addfontfeatures with conflicting specifications it depends on the font how they will be handled.

comment Bibtex and Chicago style citations?
Are you sure that the quotes are required? The latest version of biblatex-chicago doesn't use quotation marks, and as far as I know it's quite up to date and follows the CMS quite closely.

comment Making mixed trees with and without text-containing nodes
Unfortunately you got lucky with your example: Try James' example: \Tree [.DP [.Qfr ] [ [.D ] [.ΦP [.CP ] [ [.Numl ] [ [.Φ ] [.NP ]]]]]]] and you can replicate his problem even with tikz-qtree.

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.
