comment Using opacity in TikZ causes strange rendering in Acrobat.
Quite surprising that people with sufficient discrimination to choose TeX and LaTeX are prepared to tolerate the bloatware that is Acrobat... (:-)

comment Why aren't there well-hinted Type1 Computer Modern fonts supporting the T1 encoding yet?
In that situation, if all the answers are equally useful to you, then just toss a coin. But don't leave your answerers without their due thanks and feedback, and the rest of us without a guiding light!

comment Aligning paragraph inside a tabular
Perhaps you could show us a (slightly) fuller example, with the itemize? The structure of the table is beginning to sound a bit more complex than we're seeing here...

comment How do I add dots in TOC?
You're welcome. Memoir is a bit daunting at first, but once you've taken the plunge, you've got more-or-less everything you'll commonly need in one manual.

comment How should I manage to get titled and untitled paragraphs together?
@Tomas: Not exactly. Think of \paragraph as a low-level \subsection, in which the text of the "section name" is set on the same line as the text of the content of the section. A "normal" paragraph (not marked with \paragraph) is just content, which "belongs" in the division/level started by the last division mark, in this case \paragraph. Just like the case where unmarked paragraphs are part of a \chapter or \section

@lockstep: Yes, true. I think OP needs to clarify a bit exactly what he's trying to do. For example, this answer plus \raggedright might fill the bill...
