Spaces After Period

  • August 19, 2003, 6:52am

A single space after the period is commonly used in most newspapers, magazines, and similar media. Two spaces is more common in books, papers, and other documents that are considered more formal. However, it is becomming increasingly acceptable to only have one space following the period in even more formal writing.

Hyphen, N-dash, M-dash

In case you're wondering where the names come from, an en dash is the length of a standard length "n" character in most typesets and an em dash is the length of a standard length "m" in most typesets.
