You can do the adjustments in PM5 a couple of ways. First of all you have
the tracking function, it sets the space between the characters and the
settings range from "very loose" to "very tight" and "no track". You can
also Kern letters so that they appear tighter or looser and you can also
shift them up and down. The finest increment for kerning on Pagemaker is
1/100 th of an em.
