    We were all trained to be double spacers, but I finally became convinced that I should try life as a single spacer a few years ago, and I've been pretty happy with it. Actually, very happy with it. Oddly, however, I never carried the new practice over to sites such as this one, probably in an attempt for clarity, and I'm double spacing my sentences in this very post. But I haven't noticed anything unseemly. So, let's see.....

    Sam, to my eyes, that post of mine retains both spaces after each sentence.

    That IS strange, yours remain doubled, wonder if it's a specific version of the editor doing it.

    Everyone has the same editor Sam, so my money is on the fact that you're using a certain browser. Safari perhaps? :)

    Someone's got to bring sense to you double-spacing deviants! If it's HTF, more power to them. But I'm more concerned about Egregious Epstein and his manual line breaks. His missives are nigh unreadable on the iPad and iPhone. Someone's got to talk some sense into him, so he can get right.

    I was taught the double space, but have been trying to change my habits to the single space.
