I remember reading several years ago that the double spaces are no
longer needed because the software "knows" to adjust the spacing. So I
would say that with the  modern text editors, the proper procedure
would be to just use a single space and let the software handle the
spacing. If you forget and use a double space, well, I guess the
software will handle that too. ;-)

So, how would it tell the difference between the end of a sentence,
terminated with a period and a sentence containing a period used as part
of an abbreviation such as "Dr." or "etc."?
