[Forum] RE: spaces after periods
Unless you're using an ancient mono-spaced typewriter, [i]all[/i] spaces should be single, regardless of where they fall or what they follow.

[Forum] RE: Spacing Between Sentences
There should only be one space, one space, one space. Sorry to be so repetitive, but this is a real bugaboo for me. Two spaces between sentences is a holdover from the days of typewriters, when letters and spaces were all the same width. Computers are not typewriters. Anyone who advocates two spaces

[Forum] RE: Spacing before and after forward slash
I don't normally use spaces in the body of a text, but when design/typesetting calls for it—such as in the title of a work or a heading—then I almost also use spaces on either side.

Hello, I could not find the answer to this question in the manual and thought this might be the place. I am formatting the footnotes for a book and came across one author citing different chapters from an edited volume. How do I cite the edited volume when it comes up a second time? Is it: Opt

[Forum] RE: Space after Em dash
No spaces around em-dash in books published in North America. Spaces around it in the UK. I consider the 2nd more elegant and less crowded and I use it irrespectively, if my publisher allows it.

[Forum] RE: Double Line Spaces to Indicate Scene Breaks and More in Fiction
The three spaced and centered asterisks (* * *) is also called a dinkus, which is used to indicate a break in time or change of scene in a narrative. There is no special character for the dinkus, it is simply three asterisks separated by spaces and centered on the page. I agree that double line s
