Indeed.  I find "justified" text in monotype fonts incredibly ugly.
Lynx's "--justify" looks horrible.  One of my email correspondents
justifies all of his messages, including any quoted reply parts.  Looks
awful.  He won't hear of it.

It's great that Lynx has it as an option, for those wrongheaded [;-}]
people who think it looks better...
