TYPOGRAPHIC WIDOWS AND ORPHANS

 

“Widow” is a line of text at the end of a paragraph separated from the rest of the text, meaning that this line is either in the next column or in the next page. It can also appear as an opening line of a paragraph at the bottom of the column or a page, thus separated from the rest of the paragraph.

 

“Orphan” is a word or few words in its own row that end a paragraph, thus creating too much white space between paragraphs."
