comment Table cell pattern of colors
Manual. Right now, I do something like \Message{..}..{\TYPEX value}..{..}, to tell the color of the field. Something along those lines where I could say \TYPEXY value or \TYPEXY{value} would be great.

comment Table cell pattern of colors
So, if TikZ would work, it should be able to work as a single cell of a table generated by some other macro. Otherwise the duplicate work is just not worth coloring the cell!

comment Table cell pattern of colors
The table has multiple arguments, it is a communication protocol. I have a macro that generates the table, given certain parameters I give it, such as colors of certain fields in the communication message. It wouldn't make sense to generate the whole table with TikZ, since I have multiple commands that would require double-color as above and each have it at possibly different fields.

comment Wrong width in multicolumn tabularx cells
Your solution doesn't work when there are vertical lines in the table. If your format is |X|X|..|X| instead, the last "hidden" row would still show its vertical lines.

@Zarko, in that case, I could just make the table with inkscape and import the svg. But I was thinking more in line of whether some magic with multicolumn and multirow would work.

comment Why do I have to fake Texlive package in Ubuntu?
Adding to this, it would greatly help to understand that the GNU/Linux world is different from Windows. While in Windows you have to download/buy/clone every piece of software from a separate location and install each with its own installer, shipped with their own versions of the libraries (often duplicates), in GNU/Linux, e.g. with apt, you can almost always avoid doing that by having the package manager handle all the process for you.

There seems to be a bug. When the rotating node passes two certain points, a perpendicular angle appears suddenly in the middle

comment How do I prevent LaTeX from creating en-dash and em-dash?
@Werner, I'm back with a related question! If using soul package, I write: \ul{This{-}is{-}something}, what I get is This-is-somethi (underlined, of course). Which means \ul eats up as many {-} as I have! Any ideas?
