DANTE still does it, but I don't know how much it costs.

But it's *roughly* 60 words per line at least. That was what I meant.

Argh, bad wording. Sorry. I meant that the spacing between words is wider at the beginning of the lines and decreases towards the end of lines. At least the TeXbook says so. Yours, Carsten NB: We're moving houses atm, so I haven't got much time. Probably you won't see me for a looooong time from August on, since I have to leave home for most of the time then due to beginning an apprenticeship in Braunschweig (yes, that's where Jörg Rhiemeier lives as well). Later more. -- "Miranayam kepauarà naranoaris." (Kalvin nay Hobbes) Siruena, Rayam 5, 2315 ya 25:46:02 pd
