Spaces between sentences?!

Just one more question: Do the people at Blogger not realize that you are supposed to have two spaces after a period?? I have noticed this on other blogs and figured it was just the blogger. But, now that I'm blogging, I can see that even though I put two spaces in there, it doesn't show up that way!! The separation between sentences should be different than the separation between words... what's the matter with these people??

You can still do it, even if you haven't been tagged.

Hey Teri! Congrats on the blog! Yay! :-) And: two spaces after the period on a sentence isn't mandatory any more. It was invented for typewriters, which have monospaced fonts, but modern, computerized fonts have proportional spacing, which theoretically takes care of that need. *And*, in HTML, creating a double-space is a huge pain, so I'm thankful I don't need to do it anymore! :-)

Hi, Angela!

Thanks for the comment! But, *ugh* on the "proportional spacing" thing! It looks awful. But, glad that it makes less work for the HTMLers! :) Sigh... Oh, well. Thanks!
