|+||====== Form Dances ======|
|+||When the lines have not been well [[j:justifying|justified]], or if any thing at the ends prevents them being tight when [[l:locking-up|locked up]], so that when the [[c:compositor|compositor]] tries if the [[f:form|form]] will [[f:form-lifts|lift]], and finds that [[q:quadrats|quadrats]], letters, and spaces, or any of them drop down and will not [[f:form-rises|rise]], it is said, //the Form dances//. — //M//.\\ |
|+||This term is more properly applied to a form when, in being lifted from the[[i:imposing-stone| stone]], letters, spaces, or quadrats, will drop lower down than their proper situation, without entirely disengaging themselves from the form; this frequently happens.|
