Electronic publishing systems are providing authors with a tremendous amount of power formerly only available to printers: the choice of typographic design and layout. However, many authors use this power without the proper background, with potentially disastrous results. We have developed a prototype expert system that provides users of electronic publishing systems with the printer's knowledge in computer form in one narrow area of the publishing field to aid them in preparing their publications.
