*How do you measure you kerning?

popovich's picture

Okay, newbie or not but after reading several books on typography I can't remember anyone mentioning anything about how to measure kerning. Most of the time would be told "Kerning is important!", "Double-check your kerning!", "blah!", "blah blah!", BUT .... how? Say, If I have a measure X which equals the letter-spacing here "NM", then how do I measure the kerning in the following pairs "NO", "OS", "WS", "PG", etc.. Do you have your techniques? Tell me, please.

The old Calligraphy-oriented type design books educate kerning through the amount of little "bubbles" between your letter pairs. Is anyone familiar with this technique?
