Actually, Paula, I didn't write that. The person who wrote the note to which
I was replying wrote that! I did write the following:

>>PageMaker5's output shows no sign of additional spacing between words. It
must use microjustification?<

To which you replied:
>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.<

To which I now reply:
For that test, I did not change anything from the factory defaults -- no
tracking, no kerning. All in all, much better results, both with and without
full justification. Anybody have comparable info re Quark or Frame?
