When using a hyphen directly next to a capital T the spacing (kerning) looks weird:
It seems as there is too much space between the hyphen and the T. I can reproduce this behavior in PdfLaTeX and XeLaTeX (even Word) using the default font.
Is this typographically correct? If it is not what would be correct? How can I achieve a consistent correct kerning throughout the document without specifying
\kern manually on each occurrence?
Thanks for your answers.
Edit: Given that this question was marked as duplicate I realize that my formulation of the question was somewhat misleading. Maybe it would have been better to emphasize the typographical aspect of the question: Usually the automatic kerning works quite well (meaning that I never had to bother about it before). Why does the spacing look "wrong" in this special case? Am I mistaken and this is actually (typographically) correct? If it is not which value should I supply to
\kern? Guessing a value and change it until it "feels" good? Is there a better way, so that the best value is chosen automatically?
I hope this clears things up, sorry for not being precise in the first place.
