There seems to be a lot of writers out there who still cling to the idea that double spacing after a sentence is the proper way to format a sentence. I’ve contended this is a dead practice. At any rate, the discussion is interesting and so I thought I’d share this great article on the topic. It thoroughly explains why we used to double space after a sentence and why we don’t anymore.

Farhad Manjoo has written for Slate magazine, The Wall Street Journal as a technology columnist, The New York Times and has been a contributor to National Public Radio.

Check out Farhad’s article on double spacing vs. single spacing after sentences.
