comment Using “ä”, “ö” and “ü” with glossaries-Package
It'd be customary in German to replace the umlaut <ä> by <ae>. Counterintuitive as it may be, the dots of an umlaut can't really be considered accents and hence just left out; <ä>, <ö> and <ü> pretty much are letters of their own. (Just like a sharp s <ß> usually would be replaced by a double s when not available, not by a single s.)

comment Which LaTeX fonts have old style numbers?
Oh, I forgot about that. I added an explanation to your answer. Let's delete these comments soon, you go first.

comment Which LaTeX fonts have old style numbers?
lmodern doesn't have old style numerals, cfr-lm does.

comment Which LaTeX fonts have old style numbers?
@Stephen: What do you mean? The digits should be listed starting at zero? Generally, the font samples include all digits.

comment Which LaTeX fonts have old style numbers?
google.com/search?q=Oldstyle+site:http://www.tug.dk/… should give you an overview. I think it only includes fonts that have oldstyle and normal figures; tug.dk/FontCatalogue/boisik isn't included, even though or rather because it only has old style figures.

comment geometry, fancyhdr: \fancyfoot[C]{\thepage} is not really centered
@Matthias: That's the great benefit of MWEs, they're basically like debugging :). Have you considered contacting the author of fancyhdr and asking him if this "conflict" should go into the manual?

comment Fancy Header is not at the same place on first page
@ThibaultDory: Then we could go on with removing the footer, simplifying all texts, potentially even the geometry of the page (but then you'd probably notice it's got something to do with the \arraystretch). In the end, you'd get something pretty abstract that hasn't got a lot in common with your original document. Have a look at the MWE resource I linked to in my earlier comment. I'm looking forward to more questions from you here :).

comment Fancy Header is not at the same place on first page
@ThibaultDory: Thanks for your effort, much better already. Nonetheless, we're still a bit away from your code being a minimal working example. I admit it's a bit unrealistic narrowing it down after the question has been asked, but that's because creating a MWE is a bit like debugging and often leads you to the source of the problem. I agree you need a table, but you could still eliminate the packages inputenc, fontenc, lmodern, babel, textcomp, xcolor, hyperref, lastpage, graphicx, grffile, palatino, and their respective functionalities and the problem should persist ...

This is a lot of code. Even though you already got an answer, it'd be nice if you could remove everything from the code that's not related to your problem to make it a so-called minimal working example (MWE), that people can copy and compile to reproduce your problem. This way, your problem becomes relevant for a wider audience. All the tables and font definitions have nothing to do with the headers. If you need filler text, you can use e.g. the lipsum package.

comment Align footnote mark with text margin
Btw, the comma in 1,2em probably ought to be a period: 1.2em. Interestingly, it still works with the comma.

comment Align footnote mark with text margin
I cleaned up your question a bit, to show you what a well-asked question on here looks like. Don't be surprised that I removed your "thanks", we don't usually put a greeting or a "thank you" in our posts. While this might seem strange at first, it is not a sign of lack of politeness, but rather part of our trying to keep everything very concise. Upvoting is the preferred way here to say "thank you" to users who helped you.
