It seems that the rules for i.e., and e.g., are more subjective
than anything else. I tend to avoid abbreviations in writing as
much as possible. However, if you do intend to use i.e., or e.g.,
do not forget to put the comma after the abbreviation (punctuation
prior to the expression depends on the sentence).

It drives me crazy when I see those expressions used without the comma.
Guess it is just one of my pet peeves...
