Do you put one space after a sentence, or two?


I know that the two space rule came from the days of typewriters, but it's just an awful habit to break. My fingers push the double spacebar without thinking. For publishing purposes, should manuscripts use one or two spaces?

    That is interesting and informative-- especially if AP and WD say it. I still think two looks better, but I will try to adapt. (Rats!. I did it again.)

    Thanks. I know Jeff Goins has been preaching just one. I personally like the look of two--but does that date us?
