<text> The horizontal spacing between characters in a line of text. Tracking is set when a font is designed but can often be altered in order to change the appearance of the text or for special effects. It applies to both proportional fonts and monospaced fonts.

Tracking should not be confused with kerning which deals with the spacing between certain pairs of characters in a proportional font.
