- The adjustment of spacing between specific pairs of letters to optimize their appearance. A good example is A|V. Because the two characters have angles which complement each other, the kerning between them is done so that they slightly overall. If not properly kerned, these two characters would look too far apart, such as A|V. Compare to tracking, which refers to the spacing between multiple letters/characters.
