I noticed when I posted a long comment that the software eliminates any more than one space after periods.I know that some style manuals are now preferring one space rather than two, but to me, maybe it's the font, but I think that's much harder to read here.Any option on that?Thanks.

Okay, first, this is a bug I have never been able to fix. The RTE on this site is buggy as **** and it's so embedded into everything that I have no hope of removing it and replacing it with something more adjustable.
