public interface KernNode
extends Node

This interface describes a horizontal or vertical adjustment of the current position on the page. From The TeXbook

A kern_node has a width field to specify a (normally negative) amount of spacing. This spacing correction appears in horizontal lists between letters like A and V when the font designer said that it looks better to move them closer together or further apart. A kerning node can also appear in a vertical list, when its `width' denotes additional spacing in the vertical direction.
