Well, the lack of typographic control - hyphenation in particular -  
is the reason why I regard justified text as "plain bad" on the web.  
There is no way I would use it anywhere where I can't control the  
hyphenation and the text flow.

I was trying to keep my comments short, that's why I may have  
generalized a bit. No need to discuss typographic theory in this  
thread, right?

I guess the actual question is: do we really want to use justified  
text in this theme? I say no.
