One page had three large columns of text, to which I had to append three more lines. By layering the new text over the old, gaussian-blurring, sharpening it, and then pixellating the results, and hard-lighting the original over it, it looks almost as crappy as the original. Not quite, it's visibly emboldened Times New Crappy 18, but only her typesetter knows for sure.
