The Knuth-Plass line-breaking algorithm is one of the many exceptional features of TEX, taking a paragraph of text and converting it to a vertical list of well-proportioned lines. Through glue and penalty markers TEX gives the user almost complete control over the spacing and look of the paragraph.
