WRITING: Punctuation Style

Hhmph.  Somewhere along the line I missed out on this–it appears that the period no longer requires two spaces after it.  In fact, most prefer a single space because of computer and printing technology.  It also saves space and time (trees and what, a nanosecond?) MLA also finds the single space acceptable, and for now, at least, will overlook us old buzzards who learned the double-space style.

Thanks to Miss Snark for bringing it to my attention.

    I understand. I just woke up to the new style in the last year. Now, if I could just get my fingers to cooperate…but after so many decades of double periods I don’t know.
