I figured it was intelligent to convert my work to the proper manuscript formatting before continuing rather than having to re-edit an entire document once finished. I've had no trouble adopting the standards except for one: I've been from countless sources that a double space should follow any period when writing in a monospaced font. My main concern is, should I only add double spaces after peroids? Or should I do the same for exclamation marks, question marks, etc. And does this rule also apply to dialog? Should I have two spaces following the closing quote of any dialog ending in a period? I also use "..." occasionally during dialog. Should there be spaces in between each period followed by another 2 spaces? edit: also, I'm assuming this rule is only for periods ending a sentence, not for abbreviations such as Dr. Capt. etc. Sorry for all of the different situational questions but I've been unable to find a concrete "yes" or "no" on any of them.
