I'm a lexicographer of Chinese. I love TeX and regex, and other small but powerful tools.

@StephanLehmke: Actually, the original .png isn't very sharp. Wikipedia's is sharper, but it doesn't look very good, either.

comment Line up captions on side by side figures
I have been using the KOMA-script bundle for caption control, and have been having trouble controlling the width of the captions in side-by-side figures. But I find I can change the caption width before side-by-side cases, as here, and then return it to normal: \setcapwidth[c]{.4\textwidth} ... \setcapwidth[c]{.7\textwidth}. It looks good.

It is also interesting that placing french before english as an option to babel changes the situation.

comment Is there a distinct command for \widowpenalty and \clubpenalty in footnotes?
I see that a lot of bigfoot's functionality can be learned about by reading the comments in the bigfoot.dtx file, available here: ctan.mirrorcatalogs.com/macros/latex/contrib/bigfoot/…
