>On the line-length issue, I also agree with Geoff. A hard-and-fast rule about
the physical length of a line doesn't account for differences in purpose OR for
changes in the size of the typeface. I've heard some designers here mention a
formula for determining optimum line lengths, but I can't quite remember what it
was--2.5 x [font size]/ something. Any bites out there?<

The note I found (from Dennis Hayes, dlhays -at- ix -dot- netcom -dot- com) guoted the following
from a book by Frank J Romano:
>Font Size x 2 = Line length in Picas
