       Well, I guess you too are an a-typical reader  ;-)

Subject: Re: [libreoffice-users] spacing after punctuation

Virgil, I'll have to disagree with your last sentence.  It's quite obvious
to me when there are two spaces after a sentence-ending period rather than
just one, even with proportional fonts (allowing for the possibility that
there's a font somewhere with a wider space than the others).  I prefer the
double space, myself.

Don't misunderstand me. I much prefer a single space after sentence ending
punctuation for reasons I have written many times before. I was just
surprised that Jury advocated going further and using an even narrower
space. I consider that a little over the top, even for an obsessive
typophile like me. I doubt that any such narrowing would even be noticeable
by the typical reader. And the optical illusion of a wider space that Jury
notes is caused by the inherent space included with periods and commas
should satisfy the two space folks.
