Description a2219970 2012-12-12 08:35:53 UTC
Most typographers follow the rule that the last word of a paragraph should not
be hyphenated. Like this:

  Most typographers believe the last word of a paragraph should not be hyphe-
  nated.   [WRONG]

  Most typographers believe the last word of a paragraph should not be
  hyphenated.   [RIGHT]

In my opinion, automatic hyphenation should follow this rule, or at least give
the option of not hyphenating the last word of a paragraph.

I guess it is not so difficult to fix (could anyone tell?), but it would nevertheless be a major improvement, indeed. It is time to give attention to typographic quality to make our soft stand out…
