I think it is, but that can come later. > - word spacing and letter spacing are now fully implemented, they can both > have MinOptMax values; but I am still thinking about how to differentiate a > user-defined zero value from a default zero value ... You cannot. A default value is a user-defined value supplied by the system to save the user the trouble of always having to enter a value. It is just a convenience, and you cannot attach a different meaning to it. > - text-align-last is partially implemented; text-align-last = "justify" works > only if text-align = "justify" too; this is because Knuth's algorithm doesn't > provide for a different alignment for the last line. TeX uses glue to achieve this, \parfillskip. It is the special amount of glue appended to the last line. In the TeXbook, p. 99, Knuth describes it as 'the special trick that allows the final line of a paragraph to be shorter than the others'. Setting \parfillskip to 0 removes this ability. Usually \parfillskip has infinite stretchability. Regards, Simon -- Simon Pepping home page: http://www.leverkruid.nl
