I still use 2 spaces. I just think it looks better. agree disagree? And dear author, why the fuck do you use 2 lines after every paragraph? Is indenting passe as well? http://www.slate.com/id/2281146/ Type professionals can get amusingly"”if justifiably"”overworked about spaces. "Forget about tolerating differences of opinion: typographically speaking, typing two spaces before the start of a new sentence is absolutely, unequivocally wrong," Ilene Strizver, who runs a typographic consulting firm The Type Studio, once wrote. "When I see two spaces I shake my head and I go, Aye yay yay," she told me. "I talk about 'type crimes' often, and in terms of what you can do wrong, this one deserves life imprisonment. It's a pure sign of amateur typography." "A space signals a pause," says David Jury, the author of About Face: Reviving The Rules of Typography. "If you get a really big pause"”a big hole"”in the middle of a line, the reader pauses. And you don't want people to pause all the time. You want the text to flow."
