Actually, it has alot to do with "smart spaces" and nothing at all to do
with page 4-21 which deals with line spacing. The original query is
about word spacing which is the horizontal spacing between words. Line
spacing is the vertical spacing of lines on the page, which is of no help
at all in this situation.

Turning "smart spaces" on and off is one way of adjusting spacing on a line;
you can also try using fixed-width spaces, i.e., em-spaces, en-spaces,
numeric spaces, and thin spaces to make adjustments in your line.
Instructions for using these are found on pages 3-6 to 3-7 in the Frame 4 for
X/Motif manual. If you are using another version of the package, you should
be able to find references to these in the index.

Good luck.
