I thought This was Important enough for others, so I am
posting a transcript of my problem to the net. Hope it 
helps someone :

---> I wrote :

> When I produce the output, I find that 60% of the words are run

> The edges are ragged in spite of 'InitialBreak { adjust ... }'
> Interesting fact is that this happens ONLY for the Bookman or

> Food for thought guys!!

---> I tried out what Paul said and it was abso. right!

> Thaks a lot!

Hope that helps someone.
