[Forum] RE: Spaces around slashes
Ah okay then. Well, I also would interpret 6.106 as saying that the spaces on both sides of the slash are optional. Their purpose would be to make it more understandable. If you don't think it helps, then don't bother. The guideline to put spaces does not say that it only applies to permanen

[Forum] RE: Virgule Spaces
If full character spaces help readability throughout a work for some unusual reason, I would use them. Otherwise, I think spaces usually look loose and sloppy. A good compositor will insert hairline spaces to prevent crashes and make things look nice. But maybe they work for your project! Decide

[Forum] RE: Use actual slash or write out slash?
Thanks, Pixna. Good idea about hair spaces; I'll put a note in there suggesting that as a possibility. This book's font has rather wide spaces, so I feel like it would stand out more in this instance with the spaces the more I look at it. It's just way too bulky with the hyphens to leave it that

[Forum] RE: Virgule Spaces
great info Bucinka... I think spaces help for mathematical equations but that does not apply here. I'd rewrite as Bucinka suggested or use no spaces in this case (also considering the point that you wouldn't want them to be broken across lines. If this is being published, the person doing the fin

[Forum] RE: Spacing Between Sentences
I prefer one space as well, and it absolutely kills me that APA 6 has moved back to recommending two spaces. I'm guessing this is one of the other guides you mentioned whisper. Switching from two spaces to one spaces is a snap with replace all (of course some things can get messed up, if the au

[Forum] RE: "Q&A" or "Q & A"
[quote='w.willowbee' pid='820' dateline='1270672972'] It should be "Q&A." (Or am I missing something?) CMOS 15.10: No space is left on either side of an ampersand used within an initialism. R&D Texas A&M I once had a conflict with an author over a similar issue (in reference to A&P); the p

[Forum] Spaces with Initials
Do we put one space after a persons first and middle initials (as exampled below) when a surname follows? H. G. Swanson J. D. Pedersen But if we have just three initials (say, F.D.R.), we'd omit the spaces, correct? And what about a company name--no spaces between the the "J." and the "C,

[Forum] RE: Suspension points/ellipsis character and spacing
I personally detest that ellipsis character, and if forced to use it I'd prefer to set it with no spaces on either side, because to me the spaces further accentuate how horrible it looks. But if you go with spaces I'd use one on each side, not just one after.
