Yes, it might come down to the differences in how we all differently "see"

If I take two multi-word phrases, it takes a certain amount of space
between them
to make them look like distinct things, rather than a part of a single

If I then add any kind of divider in between I then have to *increase* the
so that the divider itself has enough margin to not connect with either
side.  That
distance, to me, depends on the brightness of the divider.  If the divider
has the
same weight as the text, as in the case of the vertical pipe, I need the
most space.
The dimmer the divider the closer I can move them all together.

So my problem isn't so much the pipe but that it is drawn with the same
and therefore brightness, as the text around it.
