[Resolved] [Plugin: wp-Typography] REQUEST: add extra space in front of first word of sentence

  • 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.
