Kerning affects the distance between two letters. It helps to improve the appearance of headlines and display text. Tracking inserts uniform spaces between letters to affect the width of the selected words. Postitive tracking or kerning values move the letters farther apart. Negative kerning or tracking values move the letters closer together.
