The Wikipedia article explains it quite good. Font expansion and  
protrusion both serve to optimize justified text. These are, from the  
point of view of print quality, probably the most interesting features  
of pdftex. AFAIK these microtypographic features were actually the  
reason Hàn Thế Thành  started developing pdftex in the first place.
