Look at the gaps between sentences. They are too wide. A
single wordspace between sentences is enough.
This example has no space in front of the letter W. It has
half a space (one space, half the point size) in front of
the letter A.
Weve been struggling with type over five centuries.
There arent many surprises left. But you need to pay
attention to detail. You ought to learn about the things
that make respected professionals look like ninnies, and to
make sure they dont happen to you. To begin with,
Ill give you three warnings. Lets look at them
before we move on to typographic perils.
Dont trust a built-in hyphenation dictionary. Not many
are any good. You have to check every word break yourself.
And remember that four lines in a row, each with a break, is
more than youll normally get away with.
Dont trust programs that check spelling. Theyre
good at catching words that arent in the dictionary.
The spelling errors they leave behind make the author sound
Dont trust your typist. Beware of two wordspaces after
a period, and paragraphs with three-inch indents. Good,
professional typists are too often full of the rot they
learned in typing classes.
