This post is mostly for the comments section. We recently had a debate amongst the PO life bloggers and we’d like people to weigh in to help us resolve our quarrel. The question at hand was whether or not it is correct to use one space following the end of a sentence, or to use two spaces. For example, which is correct:
“. The quick brown fox…”
“. The quick brown fox…”?
The argument arose because some of the bloggers (Eli) thought that consistency was absolutely paramount in this area. I’d like to state that from the beginning I maintained this was easily the most trivial and idiotic argument we at the PO Life have ever had. It is important to point out, however, that while you may agree with me, the argument did, in fact, command an entire day’s worth of our time and energy. So I ask you all to please weigh in. Is one or two spaces grammatically correct? How about in professional settings? Finally, did anyone even notice that I alternated between one and two spaces throughout this post?
