Wow, very nice!
Shouldn't the descriptions of the two TextEdit samples be reversed?
(Why is the "non-hyphenated" sample trying to score extra points?)
It doesn't look like the LaTeX protrusion and expansion sample is what
it claims to be...it at least doesn't seem to use char protrusion but
my eyes aren't good enough to judge whether it uses expansion (could it
have been turned off because font embedding wasn't turned on?). But
it's set differently to the other LaTeX examples. Hmmm, puzzling.
Also, you don't specify if \sloppy was used for the prot/extrude
samples. Was it?
I think I saw a typo somewhere: "teh" :)
It would be good (I'm not nominating you! just hypothetically:) to
create some sort of poster sheet with several examples and big red
circles around the ugly things with some explanation...provided there
weren't too many red circles around the TeX examples :)
