Chapter 7. Space Inside Boxes > Right Aligning Text

Right Aligning Text

The most common alignments are left, justified, and centered. Right aligning text – placing it against the right margin – is seldom done in languages that are written and read from left to right, such as English, at least not for long stretches of text. It is too difficult to read in large amounts. Its use is usually reserved for titles, cells in a table, and special design effects. Examples of these three are shown in Figure 7.2.

Figure 7.2. Examples of right-aligned text: (a) a right-aligned heading; (b) a table with right-aligned text in the first column; (c) right-aligned “side-heads;” (d) a letter with a right-aligned date and signature.
