Phooey. Usually this is just a need to replace the double-spacing after
periods. As we all know, this is now a complete anachronism that went the
way of Smith Coronas and Linotypes, yet *still *taught as gospel in high
school typing, er, keyboarding classes everywhere. *;<)*

Try a global search & replace on <*period*><*space*><*space*>, replacing
these occurences with <*period*><*space*>.
