You can tell babel-french to use «» for the guillemets, but there is also a “command form”. Note that whether you use spaces after « or before » is immaterial; however, remember “backslash-space” after \fg if you want a space when you use the command form. \documentclass[a4paper]{article} \usepackage[french]{babel} \usepackage{fontspec} \frenchsetup{og=«,fg=...

Like this? Similarly as in @Simon Dispa answer (+1), you need to define widths of columns, for example with macro \dimexpr, where consider \tabcolsep at each column. Edit: Width of cells is calculated on estimation, how width the first two column should be, i.e. about 0.11\linewidth, rest of table width is distributed to rest of columns: 2 x 0.11 + 3 x 0.26 ...

The hyphen should be in sans serif style. However, using \textsf{-swap} might render it in italics, if in a context where italics is used (theorem statements, for instance). Safe solution: use the same trick as amsmath for using a hyphen in the argument to \operatorname instead of a minus sign. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{amsmath} \makeatletter \...

Remove \usepackage{parskip}, which is the source of the issue. Indeed, its primary job is exactly to replace paragraph indentation with additional vertical space between paragraphs.
