it's a conundrum.

Okay, here's something that's been plaguing me for a very long time. I'd like a final answer on this one.

Which is it - one space after a period or two?

I've ALWAYS operated under the knowledge that there should only be one space after the end of a sentence. However, for the last few years I've been seeing that double-wide gap between sentences. This doesn't make any sense to me.

Do tell.

I believe it is two. That's how I was taught anyway.

Personally, I'm a one-space'r between sentences! See?
