[Tex/LaTex] Vertical whitespace inside tikz node


I have a tikz node that looks like this:

enter image description here

It was generated using the following code:


Tableau 0\\


You can see that the \smallskip was ignored. I suspect the problem was that TeX was not in the right mode — vertical mode?

I thought I would get around the problem by wrapping the 'Tableau 0' and \\smallskip in a vertical-mode box. But unfortunately, it looks like all of those boxes require you to specify their width (cf. What are the different kinds of boxes in (La)TeX? ), and I would need something that stretches to the width of its content.

What's the easiest way to insert the whitespace here?

Instead of Tableau 0\\ \smallskip, use Tableau 0\\[1cm], or whatever distance you want.
