comment Font with equal spacing between letters
@RandomO'Reilly Nevertheless, if ct is really that tightly spaced in otherwise very airy font, something's wrong.

comment Handwriting font that at random picks characters?
LaTeX, and especially LuaLaTeX are surely capable of doing this. But it would be a long way to go to make it work.

comment My Xylophone is off key; Understanding this kerning
I supposed it's caused by the fact that OP cuts the screenshots himself. If you see the comparison, there the first and last letter are correct.

You cannot "tighten up" in that game, the first and last letters are fixed.

comment Designing for a 6in x 9in book
@LaurenIpsum You won't get text crushed in with 0.8in margin. You'll get about 0.5in margin (depending on the binding technique), which is just right ;)

comment Designing for a 6in x 9in book
"Larger inned margin than outer" is considered wrong historically (and at least for me, this should be a still-true rule). The reason is that two pages when you have the book open should create a nice pattern of two columns of text and 3 visually equal columns of margins. Of course, binding has to be considered, which is larger for glued paperback than for proper hardcover. Therefore I would safely go with 0.8in inner and 1in outer margin. The top and bottom one should then be the same, i.e. 1in.

comment Font overload in academic documents
@Bristol Have you tried \usepackage{lmodern}? It fixes many things in CM fonts. But that's more on the TeX side than the typography side.

comment Font overload in academic documents
Sorry to say that, but I gave my first downvote because I strongly disagree with some of your points. First, there's nothing wrong with Computer Roman. I find fonts with stronger serifs much easier to read, no matter what stupid fashion exists now. Second, your attempt to redo the 2 paragraphs is quite ugly, with blackboard letters being small-caps size, missing extra space after paragraph titles, and mixing even more fonts since CM sans-serif quite doesn't work with your main font. The only point you have is increased baseline stretch, but how you did it is way too much.

comment Double space acceptable after period before abbreviated title?
You are not completely correct about double space. You can use an increased inter-sentence space, it's only most of the computer programs that can't handle it correctly, giving you the only option in double-space, which is wrong as is.

@Matt_2.0 Hi! It's soft-cover. I don't know what do you ask by "black and white", the cover is color, the book itself is BW.
