comment More space between certain rows in a table
@Chris As I said, there's no need to have a table extend horizontally to cover the text width. Just make it as wide as it need to be. I'll add an example of a “widened” table so you can see what I'm saying.

comment Where to download pdftex 1.40.4
@Philipp The notation for versions is similar to decimal, but it isn't the same: version 3.10 is later than version 3.2; each number is examined separately.

comment Better automatic spacing of differential d?
I can't see what's the point in having a complicated definition when the usual one (\mathop{}\!d, add \mathrm, if you wish) works flawlessly in all cases; there's no advantage having \dd[3]{x} instead of the simpler (and clearer) \dd^3 x. There's surely no advantage in requiring \dd{x} instead of \dd x; of course with the usual definition, braces are optional.

I fully agree with @JosephWright. Why separating groups of four in the decimal part, by the way?

comment Set author's name in small caps the first time it appears in the text
Better \global\@namedef, because the first occurrence might appear in some environment.

comment Problem with an environment definition
There is no Pcal counter, because the Pcal environment is defined to share the Gcal counter. Try \newtheorem{CalS}[Gcal]{Calore Specifico} and it will work.

comment Make font size of numerator the same as denominator?
The size is the same, but the denominator has capital letters, which are bigger.

comment How to set a global setting for hyphenation of already hyphenated words using XeLaTeX?
@JosephWright I agree; but in that case a specialized package should be used in order to correctly typeset those weird names.

comment How to set a global setting for hyphenation of already hyphenated words using XeLaTeX?
@lockstep I interpreted “avoiding tracking down” as “leaving TeX hyphenate the second part in a compound word”. Possibly LuaTeX can do better than using "-, but this is surely neater than -\hspace{0pt}

comment Fixing mathit spacing with unicode-math
@jfbu In the olden times one had to say ${\it func}(x)$, which LaTeX2e removed preferring $\mathit{func}(x)$. However the name shouldn't be read “math italic”, but “italics used in math”. With LaTeX2e, the declaration \mit (taken from Plain TeX), became the command with an argument \mathnormal.
