My editor yesterday told me to globally change my 2 spaces
after each sentence to 1 space after each sentence. The
two-space habit is so engrained that I don't know if I
can switch. I also think this is a bit of personal preference.

What do you think? In the age of desktop publishing, have you
switched to the single space? (I have heard a dtp guru list
the single space as a "rule," but I still choose to space-space.)

If it makes a difference, I was using 11-pt Palatino.

I don't know which platform you're using, but see either _The PC Is Not a
Typewriter_ or _The Mac Is Not a Typewriter_. Each offers a set of suggestions
and corresponding justifications for making your "type [look] more
professional, more sophisticated than other type"--including one space after

Auf Wiederschreiben! (Does anyone know the German verb for "commincating by the
Internet"? I'd like to update my German closing.)
