(La)TeX is user-friendly. It's just that it choses its friends with care.

I understand... The rectangle split thingy does not have the same anchors in horizontal mode. A more elaborate hack necessary - see my edit to the answer.

comment tikzpicture has a node whose text is a tree: unevenly formatting
Yep, seems that the right=of something interferes with the layout of the tree nodes. I'd also really like to know why?

comment Customizing the splitting line when using nodes with multiple text parts in TikZ?
@gablin: It should work, though. I can compile it without any problems and get the proper result. I used {\nodepart{two}\nodepart{three}\nodepart{four}} and it worked perfectly. Maybe you can give more details about the problem you experience?

comment How to get an “approximately proportional to” symbol
Not only do these 'symbols' look as an insult to LaTeX, but this is really off-topic.

comment How do I disregard automatic spacing between characters in math mode?
While I agree that the automatic spacing is the way to go, there are possibilities to introduce space (if you really, really must :) ): Check the table from this answer for completeness.

comment Setting a document in MS Word-12pt (12bp)
Plain TeX has a command \magnification, which was disabled in LaTeX. The magnification produced this way is not really a 'typographically correct' resizing of the font, but for such subtle differences, it should do a perfect job. Other than that, I think nobody would guess it is not a 12bp font, unless an actual 12bp font is placed next to it. (This may happen in documents where some pages are typeset with LaTeX and others in MS Word... but then again, probably other features/elemets will differ much more spectacularly.) :)
