    Orphan Prevention vs. Don't Hyphenate Across Columns: The Battle

    [Jongware] Most Valuable Participant

      Orphan Prevention: always keep 2 lines at the end of a paragraph together. You get an unsightly "blank line" at the bottom of a page, but trust me, that's preferred over having a dangling few end-of-paragraph words on a new page. Besides, if I spot one of those, I can usually find a manual way to override some of the text formatting and loose or win a line.

       

      Don't Hyphenate Across Columns: never allow the very last word on a page to be broken.

       

      What do you get when both rules should be used?
