comment How do I write the mathematical version of the greek letter phi when using the babel package to make greek letters upright?
@Andrey Vihrov, thanks for the tip. I'll try to keep that in mind for next time I'll post. Also, I'll look into XeTeX.

comment My pixel perfect picture gets blurry when compiled in LaTex
I still don't see why my solution wouldn't always work. What I've done is to effectively heightened the resolution of my picture so that it, when it is presented as a smaller image, will be able to show the picture without blurring. If I however send my PDF to someone else and this person don't know how to goof around with the PDF reader, then I'm pretty much screwed.

comment TikZ: Bend text so that it follows a line
OT: It's times like these I'm wondering why I even bother using TikZ. Then again, when I see the final result, I remember why :)

comment TikZ: Bend text so that it follows a line
@Martin and Tobi: Thanks. That solved the problem. I had the feeling that I had to use some other command and looked in the manual for the answer but couldn't find it. Good thing you could help me out!

comment TikZ: Bend text so that it follows a line
That's great. There's only one problem left for me now. I'm trying to change the font by putting in "font=\sffamily" on different places (I've declared it as a parameter for the TikZ environment but it seems to be overridden by "decoration.text") but I can't get it to change.

This is great. However, I also want to do exactly the things that Alan Munn suggests.

Sorry, I was a bit unclear there. I don't really care what it is that gets bent. I just want bent text as the end result. My first try was to do this with nodes.

comment Creating a “\label” that, if necessary, spans over several pages
I prefer meep.meep's sollution because of its simpleness but your's seem great if I want to customize the output further.

This was great. I'll use this for the time being and switch over to Martin's suggestion if I need to have greater control over my output.
