CHAPTER 4 –TEXT MULTIMEDiA 6 FONT MAPPING. Some fonts installed in your machine may not be available in other user’s machine.If the fonts that you used are not available in other people’s computer, a default font will be used for substitution.Specifying which font to be substitution is called font mapping.PARAGRAPH ALIGNMENT. The arrangement of text relative to a margin.Four types of alignment namely Flush left, Flush right, Centered, and Justified. The text is aligned along the left margin, also known as ragged right. In English and most European languages where words are read left-to- right, text is often aligned ‘flush left’, meaning that the text of a paragraph is aligned on the left-hand side with the right-hand side ragged. This is the default style of text alignment on the World Wide Web for left-to-right text. Flush Left Flush Right The text is aligned along the right margin, also known as ragged left. In other languages that read text right-to- left, such as Arabic and Hebrew, text is commonly aligned ‘flush right’.Additionally, flush-right alignment is used to set off special text in English, such as attributions to authors of quotes printed in books and magazines, and is often used when formatting tables of data. Centered Text is aligned to neither the left nor right margin; there is an even gap at the end of each line. This is often used for the title of a work, and for poems and songs. As with flush-right alignment, centered text is often used to present data in tables. Justified Text is aligned along the left margin, and letter- and word-spacing is adjusted so that the text falls flush with the right margin, also known as full justification.
