FIGURE 3.24 Kerning
(font is Magneta Book Italic
from Fontdeck).
Kerning refers to altering the horizontal spacing between characters to make it
look more even. Kerning is turned on using a single declaration:
-webkit-font-feature-settings: “kern” 1;
-moz-font-feature-settings: “kern=1”;
-ms-font-feature-settings: “kern” 1;
The need for kerning is most evident when you have a curved capital with a
compact lowercase letter and no ascender or descender follows it—for example,
in the word “Woman” ( Figure 3.24 ).
