Definition - What does Rags mean?
Rags is also known as ragged text.
Techopedia explains Rags
One of the most basic strategies for dealing with rags is manual line breaks that keep each line of text carefully coordinated to create subtle changes from one line of text to another. These strategies should result in columns that are not distracting to the reader. By contrast, a ragged margin can create strange whitespace that can distract the reader’s eye from the page.
In addition to manual line breaks, changes in fonts, font sizes or column or block sizes can also have a positive effect on rags. However, some types of web layout require more specialized and detailed tools. Web designers and others dealing with browser-rendered text can use specific features in Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to effectively set consistent rules for creating well-aligned margins and dealing with rags. These issues also can be important in responsive design, where professionals have to try to ensure that a piece of text looks good on any device.
