Re: Spacing of Words in Text Graphics Statements


This is the stripped form of David's example from wich you can select by 
eye the most appropriate font sizing.

Show[Graphics[
     {Text[
             StyleForm["wristwatch time",
               FontFamily -> "Helvetica",
               FontWeight -> "Bold",
               FontSize -> #], {0, #}, {0, 0}] &
         /@ Range[6, 20, 2]
       }
     ]
   ];

Regards,
Wolfgang
