  4. I was taught two spaces after the period in school but recently shifted to one per my editor's suggestion. It was a pain at first, but I've gotten used to in now. Thanks for the links, Jeff.

    1. I too was taught two spaces. I still use two, but have a macro that purges the double into a single space. That's as good a compromise as I can manage. :)

  7. Some great links, Jeff. Thanks for all this good information. Re: spaces after a period - that was a big transition for me, having spent so many years putting two of them. But apparently one is correct, so that's what I use.
