typing 2 spaces after a sentence is wrong
Typing 2 spaces after a period at the end a sentence is wrong.
Maybe “wrong” is too strong, but it’s not right. Don’t believe me? Go ask the experts, like the Modern Language Association – http://www.mla.org/style_faq3
It stems back to the old days of typewriters, where each character took up the same “space” as any other character. Skinny letters like I and l took up the same space as M and W, which would leave sentences looking broken apart and disorganized. So, the double space rule was implemented to make paragraphs easier to read.
I guess it’s up to you to follow the rules, but they’re there. Let’s see people try to enforce them.
