But, there's still positive tracking, aka letterspacing, and negative
tracking (reduction of the space around letters). And as a little
sidebar, for Fraktur type, popular in Europe a century ago,
disagreement wasn't uncommon on how to treat prevailing ligatures
(including 'sch') - should they be letterspaced or not?
