Loc: Cape Cod, MA, US
I was taught to put two spaces after a sentence. I was later told that this was not necessary, so I stopped.
I wish it were so easy for me. I learned the two-space rule and it has stuck with me no matter how many times I try to unlearn it. In fact, I just put one space after that period, and it's making me a bit uncomfortable. I may have to edit this post later if it keeps nagging at me.

But, as previously noted, you won't be able to tell the difference. For example, which sentence has the single space after it, this one? Or this one? Can you tell the difference?

You can force it in HTML by using instead of hitting the space bar twice.
Yeah, I've done that for putting spaces between lines of a menu and the edge of a table, but for simple spacing between sentences, that's just a waste of time.
OK ,F, how'd you get it to actually show n b s p ; without turning into actual HTML? Or is it just a Mac thing?
