Re: Aw: Re: [NTB] Modify, Spaces, Single Space, command
- Interviewed by CNN on 10/10/2012 13:44, bruce.somers@... told the world:
> That spacing is a personal preference. "out of fashion" is of no significance.Yes, that's why I used the term "out of fashion" instead of "incorrect"
(as is claimed by some). The reason is that there are lots of people who
mistakenly assume that double space between sentences is mandatory or at
least highly recommended. I just pointed out that to the OP that it's
actually optional and not even that popular nowadays, so he might
consider if it's worth the trouble.

- One possible (maybe - I haven't tested this) solution could be, to reprogram the period to produce ". ", where the space is a nonbreaking space (U00A0, or ALT+0160).
You would be giving up the use of a period with numbers, i.e.e the decimal point would also be followed by this non-breaking space.
