The splitting of titles on two lines is only a cautionary technique.  Not 
even a matter of preference,  it rather depends on the book.  This is one 
of the very few situations where I too advocate the kaibosching of the 
darn stripper.

Hi, Cindy!  Sarah's right, don't worry about it.  Honestly, I think this 
one of those things that is open to at least some personal preference. 
Since some who have split the titles onto two lines have complained about 
the obsessive stripper munching on them, and since all of mine seem to be 
staying put, I'll continue doing them the same way for now. <Smile>

To respond to your other question, I wish that some of the sighted 
members would give us some feedback on their preferences.  I would imagine 

that most of them read books with speech, in which case the font sizes 
wouldn't matter so much, but I'm not sure.  Maybe some of them will 
soon! <Smile>
