comment TikZ and PGF — Design considerations and approach to sizing pictures?
In the example pictures, the aspect ratios seem different. Is there a way to force the aspect ratio to remain the same as the original picture? (Disclaimer: I have yet to run this code, so maybe it already does it). The link tex.stackexchange.com/questions/74347/… appears to have the proper aspect ratios in all examples.

comment Use letter environment in memoir documentclass
The memoir class is very powerful. From what I've seen of it, it seems that you could typeset the correspondences from within memoir without having to resort to the letter environment. Chapter 13 (Decorative Text) may be of some use.

@TomBombadil if you want to put this as an answer, I'll accept it. Thanks for the help.

The second link does what I'm looking for -- an image gallery. I'm assuming this can be used with TikZ pictures generated from within the same source (i.e., not from external files)?

I didn't realise I was picking from C64 Elite, so thanks for pointing that out.

comment How to input characters into XeLaTeX
Indeed! I never thought to just go ahead and compile it. I just noticed that the "strange character" it inserts is in some cases one of the characters in the different fonts listed at the bottom of the Character viewer (picture above). For some reason, it inserts the fonts from Minion Pro fonts. However, when I compile, it doesn't map to the proper glyph. I can type in any keyboard character and get the proper result.

comment How to input characters into XeLaTeX
To use XeTeXglyph, it says to put the "index" number afterward (e.g., \XeTeXglyph 123). Where do I find the index number? I'm using the Character viewer on Mac OS X, but all it shows are the Unicode and UTF-8 codes.

comment Approach to creating graphics in book - TikZ, SVG, PDF, Inkscape?
I see now. When I export a single image from Excel, it actually puts it on a whole page.

I got this to work, but I noticed that each character grid takes up an entire page. I didn't notice any errors when compiling, but was wondering if this is the expected behaviour or something that I've done wrong. Is it possible to arrange each character grid onto a page in a (for example) 8 x 10 grid whilst maintaining the headings I've used for my template?

Why would the PDF files need to be cropped? Are the values here only for illustrative purposes?

Really nice. Exactly what i was looking for. I'm not familiar enough with TikZ to know exactly what this is doing, but it appears that it's actually calculating which cells are filled from the data?
