Typography 101

Above is a demonstration of editing a rag. The ultimate goal with a flush-left paragraph is “long short long” or “short long short”. Whenever possible, open or tighten character space to the full measure. The “AFTER” paragraph demonstrates what Chic McKinney coined”semi-justified.” Each line either makes the full measure OR falls short at the same measure. Finally, do whatever you can to avoid hyphens. Enjoy.
