After each period at the end of a sentence, I put in two spaces, not one.
Something I was taught years ago somewhere and still do.
I only put one after a comma tho.
That is correct professional secretarial style, which I always follow too.
Different horses, different courses. I believe the indent was dropped to
save a keystroke, so why the double-space is there (requiring an extra
keystroke) I don't know.
And why use secretarial style when you're typesetting? One is for
letters, the other is typically for books ... that's the trouble with
all this Artificial Stupidity - it blindly enforces rules that are
irrelevant (or even wrong!!!) for the current scenario.
