text/plain (10 lines)

   What a pity that the same doesn't go for em, en and thin spaces
   (which aren't usually present in any fonts). If you are going to use
   em dashes with a thin space either side - which is how we use them -
   in most applications you have to change the point size or horizontal
   scaling of the word space to achieve a thin space. This plays merry
   hell if you want to globally change the formatting of the text.
Why I use TeX :-)
