two spaces

Lately I've been finding myself peeved by seeing two spaces after periods or other sentence-ending punctuation marks instead of one. I'm not really sure why. It's not technically incorrect or anything, but still . . . (If you're interested in the issue, Wikipedia's article is pretty thorough.)


How about you? Any pet peeves showing their pesky little heads lately?

Bah! I don't like it. I think I always double space, it's a part of my fast typing skills developed when young and when that was taught -- so there.

P.S. I also wrote that with two spaces between each sentence, but Blogger automatically takes it out! I think you have a friend in Google somewhere.
