Hi Shuanghe,

» NIST's Typefaces for Symbols in Scientific Manuscripts.

I see.

» […] alignment of the numbers the journal made in those tables. :-D

Yep. Extremely ugly.

» Anyway, M$ Word is the only one I can use at work so I'm a bit numb about the format now. I used to be able to spot 2 consecutive space in a document immediately and always had to delete one; …

Welcome to the club. I also like superfluous space before the paragraph mark. IIRC, this was already introduced in Word 6.

» … now I accept report with a small table in the middle of page occupying 1/3 page and another 1/3 on top and on bottom page are completely empty, never even mention the orphans and widows on many pages (though I haven't seen the latter much recently, maybe M$ change settings?)...

Duno. In the default setup (for ages) it should be prevented. However, if someone changes that in a particular paragraph, bad luck. Furthermore, the copy-and-paste devil spreads this disease faster than SARS-CoV-2. In my CRO we had templates for everything. Sometimes tables looked weired. Couldn’t figure out why until I saw a colleague pressing the ⇑    while dragging a vertical column limiter with the left mouse key. Great.

» […] But even for some of the "supported commands" I cannot use it here. e.g., \LaTeX{} and \TeX{} are supported and they should output their typographic symbols, respectively, according to the previous link, but it seems I cannot get them to work.

Strange enough both are rendered in italics: \(\small{\LaTeX}\) and \(\small{\TeX}\). No idea how to work around that.
