HI Cindy and all:)

Maybe the wild island was fully justified before it went to print. That
could have caused words to be spread out and bunched together on some lines.

Hi, Cindy.

I read my books with speech, and I have never noticed any difference 
depending on how lines are justified.  However, the gaps between words might

be a pain for Braille users, so maybe left justifying is the way to go.

The reason the fully justified lines have large spaces between words is 
because the word processor is trying to line both the right and left margins

up perfectly straight, and so it moves words around to make this happen.  I 
can remember seeing what this looks like when I read print and it could look

kind of funky.  <smiles>
