Dean, there is no need to light a match.
I read techwr-l very faithfully. (Yes, you are probably
sick of seeing my posts, esp. when I accidentally post
a private note to the list.) I can honestly say that NO,
this subject was not beaten to death on techwr-l.
However, some of the persons who were kind enough to reply
to me said that the subject was discussed at length on the
Frame Maker list--a list to which I do not subscribe. Perhaps
that is where you beat your horse.
If you know of a published reference on readability of period
spaces that was mentioned on the other list, I'd appreciate
you posting it to me.
BTW, I posted a question and summarized the replies within a
space of about 6 hours. I hope you don't consider that to
be a drawn-out discussion.
Have a good weekend, and don't forget to give Mom a call.
