I am aware of this. That's why I advocate for
 - the survival of true typographers,
 - the two-way communication between typographers & authors,
typographers can enhance a text's presentation because they know the
Rules (;-), authors are the only caution of the scientific validity of
the altered text. 

We're currently facing very hard times, where publishers save money by
replacing typographers' skill by `expert' software, and each author
develops his own convention, yielding an unfriendly, badly typeset,
babel of notations.
