this is news to me...
oh poopy
apparently, they ("they" being the MLA, Strunk and White and the AP) have changed the typographical guidelines, so that it is now not merely acceptable but expected that only one space is to be used after a sentence-ending punctuation mark.

that's gonna be a tough habit to break.

That figures. It WAS the one rule I was absolutely certain I knew.

One space? Eugh...I sigh on behalf of writing majors everywhere.

I'm going to protest in the form of retaining my old school charm. 2 spaces regardless of the MLA, since they're "the man" anyway.

Oh great. I am NEVER going to be able to break that one. Two spaces is just habit.
