Some time ago, I learned from work that sentences should not be separated by two spaces anymore. Only one is needed. I was trained to use two spaces between sentences.

They said that the two-space separation was done only because of the monospace fonts available back then (typewriters... dunno why).

Now, since the dawn of computers, word processors, blogging, and different kinds of fonts, only one space is needed. They said it is the modern way of writing.

Whenever I type a paragraph, I have become conscious in placing only one space between sentences.

I'm a nerd.

Wow, that is going to be a hard habit to change for most anyone.
