Subject:Re: Two spaces vs. one after periods From:"Sevigny, Josee" <joseey -at- M3ISYSTEMS -dot- QC -dot- CA> Date:Thu, 25 May 1995 14:51:54 -0400
As per _The Canadian Style_ entry 7.07 states:
A period at the end of a sentence or run-in heading is followd by a single
space, as are periods used as ellipsis points; periods within abbreviations
are not followed by any space.
Also, I can't remember in with magazine I've seen this, but it said that DS
was still in use for typed work, but not anymore with word processors and
Hope this helps!
