'Balance ragged text' concerns - Adobe Indesign Macintosh

I'm loving 'balance ragged text', are you? I just had a teeny weeny concern though... One bad habit some of the writers at my place have is to decrease kerning or tracking if they cannot be bothered or have the time to... say sort out a widow for example. How does Indesign balance ragged text, it's not doing anything funny with letter spacing or word spacing is it, for the sake of good looking text? thanks for reading, hope to hear from you Alex...

    As far as I can see, it takes the text you have set the way you have defined, works out how many lines it will take up and then redistributes the words to balance the content on those lines.

    Yes, for situations where it applies. I have found that some clients don't like the results as much as I do when I use if on heads in my doents.
