Ah, more typography madness

Painting with Print, a great article if ever there was one, says among other things:

"The practice of using two spaces between sentences and indented first lines to begin the new paragraph are merely remnants of days when attorneys had only typewriters at their disposal and were forced to use a monospaced font."

Within the last week, a lawyer somewhere in these United States went through my draft of a document and he or she added a space after each period, and when I got it back, I typed "Command-H" (find and replace) and replaced all those double spaces with single spaces.
