The bad word spacing seems to occur only with "Bold" FontWeight and not with
"Plain" FontWeight.

People using Windows XP don't seem to have the problem at all.

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.

Needs["Graphics`Colors`"]
Show[Graphics[
      {Text[
          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.
