A CDE Definition
In proportional spacing, the tightening of white space between letters to create a visually appealing flow to the text. Due to the slanted vertical lines in two-letter combinations such as AW, WA and TA, kerning reduces the white space between them for a better appearance. See proportional spacing and tracking.
