I find that much of my text looks untidy on the right-hand side. I can get a neat edge on the left-hand side, but not the right. Is there a way to make it look neater?

Justifying is a convention in printed media but not on the web. On the web text should be right, left or center aligned. I know that a neat block of text looks nice to the eye, but it is very difficult to actually read the text on the screen. So if your intention is for people to read what you have written I encourage you to reconsider your policy of justifying your text. See: for more information.

If you still decide you want to do this, we can help you with HTML code to achieve it.

Thanks. Hmm, you're probably right, it would be more difficult to read.
