And that's at its worst in the large print we buy, where margins are sacrificed in an attempt to keep the weight of the book down for arthritic hands. But they almost always fail to allow any hyphens, for some reason, so the word spaces are often huge and irritating. And they'd get a lot more words on a page if they did use some decent hyphenation.
