comment What is the difference between \fontsize{…}{some length} and \linespread{some length}?
It seems that using both of them has a compounding effect; is one used in calculation of the other or something?

comment A line of text with proper positioning but consuming no space?
Even with \offinterlineskip the title is in different positions with/without the subtitle; I want it to stay in the same place. Putting it in a new row would work except then its proximity to the main title is constrained by the left and right cell heights.

@PeterGrill It should be below the main title, except I don't want it to take up any space (so maybe it will overlap with the \tabucline, I don't care about that).

comment hangindent + wrapfig = bad spacing?
Is there any alternative to wrapfig that would play nicely with \hangindent, or any alternative to hangindent that would play nicely with wrapfig?

comment How can I produce 3 centered columns, with the middle one fitting the width of its content?
Actually the answer on my other question has a good idea: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/75066/…

comment Small text in table does not recalculate line spacing
Thanks, this works great! It made me realize that I didn't even want to change the linespread in my table, I just needed to remove the {}.

comment Small text in table does not recalculate line spacing
@PeterGrill Forgot to mention in my question but I tried that, and it works, but it adds an extra space after the text (which is undesirable).

comment Vertical and horizontal alignment with tabu package
Ah, I understand. So is there a way to dynamically determine the center of the c column and set its baseline there instead of the baseline of the text? I know you used -.3\height but can this be done automatically based on the contents of the cell?

comment Vertical and horizontal alignment with tabu package
\linebreak works. But I'm not sure what you mean about the centering — if I make the table even taller, it doesn't seem that the alignment of the X column has to do with the baseline of the c column but perhaps the center of it — see here: cl.ly/image/3W2O2m2V2R25
