I'm a passionate software engineering trying to understand it at a deeper level while working on my PhD at the CWI (Netherlands), where we try to improve the future using DSLs (checkout the Rascal - Meta Programming Language).

Languages I learned and still use: Rasal-MPL, C#, Java, Javascript, Ruby, C, C++, Matlab, LaTeX. (This list should be considered outdated when you're reading this ;-))

As a hobby I try to bridge our software to the physical world using arduino, read ebooks, and enjoy photography.

just as a tip, Wikipedia uses LaTeX style markup for their functions. When your press the edit button you can see :<math>(f\circ f)(x) = f(f(x)) = f^2(x)</math> ;)

comment Padded Left Align for Table Columns
@Freddie Witherder you could use \newcommand{} to create a function which represents one line, and in this command you can add the \eqparbox. for the above example: \newcommand{\salesline}[4]{#1 & \eqparbox{oct}{#2} & \eqparbox{nov}{#3} & \eqparbox{dec}{#4} \\ } you can than use in your table: \salesline{Widgets}{55.2}{89.2}{57.9} and the rest is easy :)

comment How to handle wide columns with \backslashbox?
yes, nice answer to the question. Too bad there isn't a more automatic way to achieve this. Now I have a dilemma, @Thorsten answer offers a visually better way to solve this, but this answer by @Geoffrey is the exact answer to the question asked, which should I accept?

comment How to handle wide columns with \backslashbox?
yes, the actual table does not have vertical lines, but I included them to make the point about the diagonal line. and I was already using booktabs, but I just reduced the problem for the example, but I like the second suggestion, I hadn't thought about that.
