Just an FYI, for all you people who delight in telling me when I'm wrong about something. You've been missing a big one for the entire life of this blog. Apparently, I've been doing something wrong for ten years and literally nobody has told me about it until this morning.
I learned how to type in the 80s on typewriters, which means that I would double-space after every sentence. But thanks to modern typography and the overall death of proportional fonts in text (including this blog), apparently all the key style guides were changed around 2003 to indicate that one space after a period is now correct. People who are into typography assure the rest of us that two spaces induces an unnecessary pause in the reader's mind while reading, a single space therefore eliminates these pauses and increases flow. Not only did I completely miss the change, but I've been continuing to double-space for ten years now in all of my writing and nobody's said a single word to me about it...
...until this morning, when CCP Dolan mentioned it to me in the most off-hand way possible.
I suppose I could say that I'm old school. But if the style sheets change, I'm willing to change with them. That's what style sheets are for. So, I'm surprised I haven't heard about this change until now, but henceforth this blog will be following the style sheets.
But there's an amusing counter-argument if you want to read it.
