Thanks for catching the typo.

I agree it's archaic, but it is standard practice in English.

Also, emacs, with the default sentence-end-double-space setting, doesn't
treat punctuation followed by a single space as an end of sentence and
when reflowing text even goes to extra effort not to break a line at
such a position (because that would make it look like it *were* the end
of the sentence).

TeX also distinguishes between interword spaces and end-of-sentence
spaces, but it uses a different heuristic (which can be overridden by
explicit markup).  It also typesets them differently: end-of-sentence
spaces are a bit wider and more elastic.

Nevertheless it is probably good that there is no Unicode
END_OF_SENTENCE_SPACE character; otherwise we would never get *any* work
done for all the arguing about how to encode empty pixels :-)
