Default Title breaks

So I have this book setting beside the computer these last few weeks.

THE THEORY AND
PRACTICE
OF TRANSLATION

See how that word PRACTICE sets by itself. It irritates me. No doubt, this is the title the author wanted, but it just doesn't break right into two lines, so they played around with the words until they got what they disliked least.

I can't tell you how many times I've had this same problem -- I want the title but can't break it to look right. I guess it's a fact of life: good titles don't type set well -- except maybe in fiction.

Hmm. Photomechanical Reprint?? What's that?

No, I don't like this book, but I keep it around for explaining why it's wrong.
