I repeated the experiment.
Linux Libertine G, 12 pt.
I wrote a name with a initial, with and without a dot. The space between
words is highlighted to make clear its width.
To aling the two paragraphs, used a dot at the start of the first group of
words. Both paragraphs are left aligned, therefore any change in space
should be for a proportional space between after a dot different from the
space between words. In this case, the space should be less than a normal
space as in Dr._Name.
From the image 14, you can see that isn't any difference in spacing.
Repeating the experience with justification, the spacing is expanded a
little, but I can't see clearly if its only after punctuations or also
between words. Look at the second image (screenshot15).
LibreOffice does not change the interword spacing in an intelligent manner
as LaTeX does, being this software the best example of superb typography.
So, if any typist use two spaces after and end of sentence dot, is in
average reducing the interword spacing and increasing the end of sentence
spacing in a visible manner.
Also, this problem is not also from an end of sentence. It is also, for the
space after the titles (Mr.[space]name) and for the space after ':' and
after ';'. It is also known that in France, must be a small space before
the end of sentence dot.
