Fonts that adjust spacing (6 posts)

    I'm not sure what they are called. Looking for the fonts that adjust spacing so that a block of text is nicely aligned evenly and square on the right end of the sentances.

    Thanks!

    that would be the justify attribute and not the font itself
    text-align: justify;
    in css

    Thanks a lot, I didn't know that. I thought it was proportional font or something.

    Your welcome :)
    There are actualy two types of fonts as far as character spacing in the actual font goes.. You have monospace fonts where each character is the same size in width (so a word with 5 letters is the same length no matter what 5 leters you use) vs. proportional fonts where the width for instance in the letter I is smaller than the width in the letter O or W.

    But if I am understanding your question correctly, you are talking about the alignment of the words in the paragraph itself.. so the left and right side margins are a straight line making a "box" kinda like you see in newspapers and magazine articles..

    Yes, I just wanted the text to look like a square block, or without the raggedy, uneven look. On certain templates, the righthand unevenness doesn't look too good.

    But thanks to you, it's perfect now with the text-align tag.

    Thanks!
