Example 9-8. Letter and word spacing
<p style="letter-spacing: 10px;">I married early, and was happy to find in my wife a disposition not uncongenial with my own. </p> <p style="word-spacing: 0.5em;">Observing my partiality for domestic pets, she lost no opportunity of procuring those of the most agreeable kind. We had birds, gold fish, a fine dog, rabbits, a small monkey, and a cat.</p>
The first paragraph will have 10 pixels between each letter, and the second will have 0.5 ems between each word (see Figure 9-15).
