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

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.
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
