I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post, but here goes. When submitting/formatting a manuscript, is dialog supposed to be enclosed within single ' or double " quotes? I write in MS Word using double quotes. They are easy to change to singles, but changing singles into doubles would be a bit harder. Does a period always have two blank spaces after it? I seem to remember reading that in an ms formatting thread somewhere. And are either of these different in the US or UK? Thanks.
