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

comment How can I produce 3 centered columns, with the middle one fitting the width of its content?
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)?

comment Itemize & italic with [utopia]{mathdesign}
@egreg I need to remember to minimize my document before even asking the question... turns out it wasn't a problem with math but with itemize. Probably the bullets.

comment TikZ: conditional nodes inside \foreach
Great, thanks! Is there any way to do this inline (without requiring \test)?

Thank you, this is really helpful! I hope some similar examples make it into the documentation when you translate it :)

@egreg: Thanks for the tip. I just updated the question to include the output of \listfiles.

Which would those be? TeX Live Utility doesn't show any new updates.

Sure, but the results are disappointing: I get the same behavior when I include nothing but tkz-graph.

If I use this exact input I get the same error I originally posted.

comment Is it possible to get a blackboard-bold 0?
I was using mathpazo. And no, \mathbb{0} doesn't work.

comment How do I disregard automatic spacing between characters in math mode?
I know it's not good style; the point here is that the sequence should be a string of characters, not a mathematical/logical expression. Thanks for the tip... do you know of a way to do it without so many dollar signs to switch in and out of math mode?

comment Vertical spacing between fractions in matrix environment
Ah... I thought \em was a macro rather than a unit!

comment Vertical spacing between fractions in matrix environment
OK, I did see that, so I guess my question is... is \em equivalent to \\?
