David Dubin asked:
How do most of you handle spacing between text and graphics, text and tables,
and between text blocks within a document?


I include the spacing as part of the style definition, then limit the size
of the widows and orphans that can be left on a page. After that, I let
the pages break where they will. Of course, sometimes I cheat and add a
"Keep with next" to force a paragraph to stay with a graphic. That way,
spacing is kept standard.

I _never_ add a hard page break. That just creates too many problems with
edits later.

Regardless of all the advantages of technology, there's just something
inspiring about a blank pad of paper and a freshly sharpened number 2 pencil.
