I just wanted to add my two cents worth. I just now discovered a good way to
get extra spacebands out of documents, I'm sure it's common knowledge for
most people but just in case anyone is as slow to catch on as I was ...

Using Word I do a search for a " " (double spaceband, without the quotes)
with a replace for " " (one space band without the quotes) it zaps them
right out.
