This process of controlling text is what some people call the “Holy Trinity of Text.”  Actually, I made that up.  You can quote me if you like.  Tell people that Bill the Geek made up the phrase.   It can be done in almost any word processing application. Kerning, leading and tracking have been key issues in the land of print for centuries. Ask any print designer what they are and they will talk your hear off for hours.

This process gets done a little bit different than in the land of print. Like I said, you can go into Word, Photoshop, Illustrator, even Text Edit, all of them having Kerning, leading and tracking capabilities. The funny thing is that of the billions of people that use those applications, only a few know how to use them.
