46. It took a long time
Edited on Fri Nov-19-04 07:52 PM by AlienGirl
I grew up with the two-space habit, as well as the Oxford comma, and British spellings (which I learned from reading British mysteries as a kid)*. Computers prefer one space, though, so I have learned to go down to one space and use US-standard spellcheck to clear up my spelling. I also don't indent paragraphs anymore.

Two spaces are necessary after a colon if you use the two-space system.


*I even managed to get my grade school teachers to accept British spellings in my papers.

(on edit: I am soo fried from school...)
