One of the long standing problems I have had with text in graphics is that the spacings between words is irregular. In fact, sometimes the space between words is entirely loss.

Here is an example.

          StyleForm["With wristwatch time indicated", 
            FontFamily -> "Helvetia", FontWeight -> "Bold", 
            FontSize -> 12], {8., 12.}, {-1, 0}]}],
    PlotRange -> {{0, 16.5}, {0, 14}},
    ImageSize -> 450,
    Background -> AliceBlue];

The space between "wristwatch" and "time" is lost. One can sort of fix it by putting in extra spaces after the bug pops up. This also happens with PlotLabel. I wonder if anyone knows why this happens.
