letter space

   In typography, letter space is the placement or retention of space between characters. Kerning, by contrast, is the technique of adjusting the spacing between two letters to bring them close enough to overlap. The horizontal spaces between lines of type are called leading. Also see alias, calligraphy, graphic design, lacuna, leading, lettering, text, type, and typeface.
