[resolved] [Plugin: wp-Typography] REQUEST: add extra space in front of first word of sentence (2 posts)

    Grammar dictates that any sentence, with the exception of the first in the paragraph, must have two leading spaces. This might be a good addition

    prometh,

    The double space after a period is legacy from monospaced fonts on typewriters and is not recommended for use with modern proportional-width fonts.

    Further, HTML requires browsers to collapse all adjacent spacing to a single space. So even if I inserted an extra space, it would just disappear. I suppose I could insert a no-break space (these don't collapse), but given the above, that seems unnecessary.

    See http://www.itcfonts.com/Ulc/4111/DoubleSpaces.htm for more information.
