As a follow-up to our earlier discussion of one versus two spaces
following a full point/full stop/period, I offer the following passage

<sigh> With the different ways people reply to this group, this discussion is all over the place when using gmane and a newsreader. :-(

I think I've got all of these messages read, and it seems to me everyone has overlooked one thing, the font itself. What did the designer do with the individual characters and punctuation marks and whatever else may be in the font regarding white space in the glyph itself?

It seems logical to me that's going to make a difference in whether the spacing after a period, for example, should be 1, 1.5, or 2 spaces. And maybe, you'll just have to do some manual kerning.

Or...  Am I missing something?
