Superfluous Space

The Friday File: Currently, 36% of persons put two spaces after a period and before the next sentence, 64% put one space.

The debate exists because older people learned on typewriters with fixed-width fonts while younger individuals learn on computers with proportionally spaced fonts. Henceforth I will employ one space, saving keystrokes and paper.
