TextJustification how much to allow lines of text to be stretched to fit
PageWidth how wide to assume the page is
LineSpacing vertical spacing between lines of text
ParagraphSpacing, ParagraphIndent paragraphs defined by newlines in text
CellMargins space around cells
Line Breaking
Esc nbs Esc non-breaking space character in text
LineBreakWithin whether to allow line breaking within an expression
Hyphenation whether to hyphenate words
LineIndent how much to indent successive nesting levels in an expression
