Never use two spaces after a full stop.

by Leveret

Monday morning must read:

Every modern typographer agrees on the one-space rule. It’s one of the canonical rules of the profession, in the same way that waiters know that the salad fork goes to the left of the dinner fork and fashion designers know to put men’s shirt buttons on the right and women’s on the left. Every major style guide—including the Modern Language Association Style Manual and the Chicago Manual of Style—prescribes a single space after a period.

  1. I did not know! My high school typing teacher taught me to use two spaces. That’s why my blog gets goofed up with too many empty spaces! I am born again, as you can see, only one space after each period. It will be a difficult habit to break, but I will work at it. Thanks for the info.
