Note that there should be a space before the + on the right-hand side, or the package interprets the + to indicate an ion.

@Stephan That seems to do it. Do you want to post as an answer? Are you aware of any unwanted side effects this could have?

comment Smooth option sometimes produces incorrect arrow tips in PGFplots
How do I modify this so that a beginning arrow tip also points in the right direction? If I am using <-> arrows, this fixes the end arrow but not the beginning.

comment Aligning text in S columns in a way that respects the decimal marker for numerical entries
@Joseph Wright At first I hoped there may be some way to access decimal alignment for text; some sort of width that was part of the package but not mentioned in the documentation. I suppose it is indeed a feature request though. Thank you for putting it under consideration!

comment Aligning text in S columns in a way that respects the decimal marker for numerical entries
Thanks for the answer. I can't play around with this until Monday, but at a glance I have a concern. I am working on a very long document with hundreds of tables like this. And I very much want a solution at the level of S. That is, I won't want to have to put anything more than a pair of braces around my non-numeric table entries, let siunitx and S detect what is numeric and what is not, and typeset accordingly. Can I modify S to wrap your tcenter around non-numeric entries?

comment Aligning text in S columns in a way that respects the decimal marker for numerical entries
@Qrrbrbirlbel Sorry for the confusion - in my MWE the Title is centered fine, and even better, without any manual spacing. Ideally, I would like a siunitx solution to my problem with text-at-decimal alignment - perhaps defining a new fourth option for table-text-align. I want to emphasize that such a solution should leave my heading alone, and still be overrideable by \multicolumn. Hopefully, this is not actually an issue.

comment Aligning text in S columns in a way that respects the decimal marker for numerical entries
@Qrrbrbirlbel Thanks for your answer - I will try to apply it Monday when I again have access to my desktop. I believe that in my experiments, the text alignment from S was overriding the alignment c in my \heading macro. As I recall parameters like table-text-alignment=left made the c in my \heading command pointless. I may be misremembering though - I went through a lot of experimentation this morning.
