comment Place floats on a separate page before the referring text
@Mico: Good point -- thanks. Yes, floats may appear on the page where they are mentioned if possible. What I want to avoid is a float appearing two or three pages away. Some portions of text refer to a few floats, so there is physically not enough space for them all to appear near to the text. Hence, placing them before the text on their own page, which will then be bound on the left, facing the text page.

comment Local footnotes with letters in longtable
Please explain why you think this will confuse the reader? My thinking is that footnotes in a table should be local. Reading a table where the first footnote is "e" would make it seem that the table should also contain footnotes "a" to "d". My intention is to separate footnotes in the textual part of the document, with those of a stand-alone entity like a table.

comment PNG DPI and image size
Thanks for the explanation. Changing the image to 150 DPI increased the size of the image in the PDF. Edit: I'll try the additional suggestion you just made in your updated comment too.

Yes. Post that as an answer :) \emph didn't work (obviously) and I didn't know about \itshape.

comment Position text next to rectangle in TikZ
Is it possible that the size of the rectangle I specify be exact/fixed/absolute, rather than "minimum"? If the text in {} is too long, the rectangle is enlarged. I need all the rectangles to be exact/fixed/absolute sizes, to scale, so I don't want them to ever grow in size. I'd rather see the text overflow and then change the text to something shorter.
