Also, (I have indesign here) there is a setting that allows for
shrinking the font horizontally on one entire line in case the last word
a) can't be hyphenated at a practical location
b) the word would hang only a little (expressed in a percentage of the
line width) off the side of the column
the shinking allows for the entire line to fit in the column and its
almost not visible.
