On my setup... $Version "5.0 for Microsoft Windows (November 18, 2003)" ... (which is actually version 5.0.1.1 !), I DO see a space between "wristwatch" and time", of the same size to the naked eye as the other two inter-word spaces. (This is at a native screen resolution of 1600x1200 with an ATI graphics card.)

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. > > David Park > djmp at earthlink.net > http://home.earthlink.net/~djmp/ > > > -- Murray Eisenberg murray at math.umass.edu Mathematics & Statistics Dept.
