View Full Version : The Ends do NOT Justify the Means

Jul 4th, 2002, 09:07 AM
Is it possible to line up the Text content of a web page in the same manner as MS Works(No Return Carriage:Justified-->Perfectly Lined Text) with CSS(if not then with ANYTHING? sighs with despair), because the "text-align: justified;" attribute of CSS just Doesn't Cut It (VERY Sloppy, in IE at Least, didn't try NS6+).


PS: How do you get Extra Whitespace in this Forum(and HTML)? (not mandatory)

text-align:justify; is the only way other than monospaced fonts or using images of justified text of actual text.

A lot may depend on your content and font selection. Also, narrow columns of text just don't look good when justified.

Netscape/Mozilla does seem to line up the right-hand edges better than IE.

     Extra whitespace can be gained by adding
     "& n b s p;" (without the spaces) to your
     message. Same goes for HTML :p
     If this doesn't work, well I guess I was

I use text-align:justify on all of my pages - never seemed to have a problem with it.

I guess it all depends on your standards. Open up MS Works and see what I mean, just don't put in any return carriages or it won't turn out right.
