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 {}.

@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?

\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

Is it possible to vertically center the cells when using \newline to break lines?

Neat! Is this how most fancy layout packages calculate widths as well? Is there a nice way to do this without having to type the content twice? Also could you explain how this works (what the \dimexpr, 0.5, and 3 are for)?
