Typesetting: Now considered irrelevant, but there was once an art and science to placing letters and words on a page, with humans that took great care to make optimal use of letter forms. Should make a comeback any minute. Bad typesetting pet peeve of PBox; good typesetting pillar of PBox. See also: PBox Conundrum; Old Dudes; Swiss.
