  1. On the other hand, if you do use \hbox and \vbox, you
  2. can make TEX do almost everything that Ben Franklin could do in his printer’s
  3. shop. You’re only giving up the ability to make the letters come out charmingly
  4. crooked or badly inked; for such effects you need to make a new font. (And
  5. of course you lose the tactile and olfactory sensations, and the thrill of doing
  6. everything by yourself. TEX will never completely replace the good old ways.)
