The longest thread I ever had on my Facebook page was over this issue. It was amazing how many people defended the double space with the same intensity as their religion, their politics, or how they hang toilet paper.

Handy to get tips on this. Thank you.

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

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