We've discussed margins and readability in the past on this list. I was
looking for unrelated information in the FDA Guidance on Medical Device
Patient Labeling (2001), and I happened upon the following suggestion:
"Justify the left-hand margin. Use ragged right margins."

They include references about readability, but they don't specify which
reference they used for this suggestion.
