Seeing the number of downloads it seems you guys are liking it :)

I will update this post as new blog articles are added to the document.

About the requested change of justify, are you sure it improves that much readability?

Cheers!

For mysel personally, "justified" equals less eye strain. YMMV, but my vote goes to justified.

Can't say I was much impressed with it. I've seen much better ie. more accurate advice on places like GS. But, it's just one guy's opinion - as is mine - whic is fine.

OK, I'll see if I can do a quick tweak through style definitions and get next update with justified paragraphs.

Sure, but isn't it impressive that all of this is in a single blog?
I haven't extracted or filtered anything, what you find here is the exact blog content.

To find a similar amount of informations in places like GS you have to lurk around for quite a while and put together a lot of sparse threads. I like to think I can have so much knowledge collected in one place and easy to find when needed.

It depends on what you mean by 'more accurate'. Obviously the content on my blog has to be pretty generic - because it needs to apply to as wide a variety of situations as possible. I'm not writing for a specific person or a specific song. It's generic advice.

I do provide detailed and specific advice for my artists and clients, however.

And you're absolutely right that it's just my opinion. Many people find it useful. I'm sure many more simply move on - it's not for them.

-Kim.
