Thanks for confirming the negative spacing was no longer supported. good to
know. the reasons I hadn't used tabulators are that I want the prices on my
menu to align right (so the decimals are lined up) and be styled
differently to the menu item they sit next to. hence giving them their own
paragraph style.
I guess the beauty of DTP is there is always another way to do things so I
can make it work regardless
cheers David
