Paul,

Not exactly, but here is a reference to a website for a book that
does discuss text alignment.

Best,

ADMIN: Our list arhives are public - and have been from day 1

Our IxD discussion list archives are public.

Someone recently found a message they posted on a Google search results list
and was surprised to do so. Yes, the list archives are publicly available.
We feel that this is a service to the design community, so that subscription
is not required in order to reap the benefits of the list.

This may mean that some people might want to consider what information they
put into their messages. Please see my signature below as an example.

interaction over the internet. The system allows touching and feeling
of animals or other humans in real time, but it's first being tried
out on -- chickens."

"We understand the perceived eccentricity of developing a system for
humans to interact with poultry remotely, but this work has a much
wider significance."
