This results in the differences in output you observe.

Moreover, we find that although the identification of the most decisive matches is independent of the model considered, the identification of other key matches is model dependent. Typographic techniques applied by microtype are not desirable in some situations.

This paper addresses this issue by analyzing the role of the statistical approach used to estimate the outcome of the game on the identification of decisive matches on international tournaments for national football teams. This actually helps lateex make the margin look less ragged than if they were aligned strictly to the left of the right margin.

The documentation includes several standard tables contrasted with the results possible with booktabs as well as a discussion of micdotype of the rules for typesetting tables. You can use the ifpdf package to conditionally execute code when running under pdflatex or otherwise: Microtype documentation contains an example, which I used to disable protrusion in ToC.

MiKTeX Package Information –

The vc package is more flexible than svn-multi but is a little more difficult to set up: In the mean time, if there is a way to disable microtype that would be helpful. These options are suitable for set-it-and-forget-it use: After upgrading to microtype 2. Therefore, the next step was to activate protrusion for the superscript-sized text. All three figures above can be seen in their animated version.

This code adds negative spacing around character “1” resulting in a more symmetrical placement of the period between “1” and “3”, and positive spacing around en-dash.
