  Hello,

I would like to use the optical alignment capability of pdftex
inside hbox.

For example, when I type

\hbox{Just a roar}

I would like pdftex automatically add a kern of -(\lpcode of J) at
the left of the \hbox and a kern of (rpcode of r) at the right.

Do you have any idea how I can force pdftex to do that ?

I haven't understand yet how pdftex decide to make these optical
adjustments or not: any piece of information will be welcomed.
