From the “Yet Another Subject For A Holy War” Department, Microsoft is
planning for the next update to Word to flag two spaces after a full
stop and before the next sentence as a typo
Where do you stand? Microsoft ran a poll on the question, and it seems
the majority favoured a single space.
Two spaces in a formal document, letter, novel. It helps with readability, even
with proportional fonts. (It could be argued more so with proportional fonts, as the
period no longer has as much space).
Caveat - apparently I’m old and cantankerous...
