[TR] needs repaired

 Interesting.  The Android keyboard will automatically place a period after the last word typed if a double space is entered.  I don't think double spaces are forbidden and make the text easier to read.  

Here's what I find really annoying.No spaces after a period.Makes it difficult to recognize the end of a sentence.Really.

It was a typewriter issue. Because of the fixed spacing of characters on a typewriter, two spaces were used to clearly show the end of a sentence and to separate it from the start of the next sentence. With the proportional spacing in word processors and electronic devices, two spaces no longer were necessary and in fact the use of two spaces clearly identifies the author as a previously typewriter trained individual.    Keith Stewartkeithstewart at bell.net      From: Brian Kemp <bk13 at earthlink.net>

Some people have an eye for this type of thing.  In my case, I'm drawn to extra spaces between words or a single space after the punctuation at the end of a sentence.
