    question re multiple spaces... should I correct?

      Hi there,

      It was only yesterday, while searching out information about InDesign on the internet that I came across an article on the subject of basic mistakes that newbies commit, and I gulped.  The person said this:  "it’s surprising how many people didn’t get the memo: No multiple spaces. Ever. Not after a period and especially not to align text.  If the text files you’re working with have extra spaces, then zap them using the predefined GREP query Multiple Space to Single Space"

      By habit, all my life, I've added two spaces after a period, and one space after a comma.

      Should I now go about getting rid of those spaces, in the way described above ("Multiple Space to Single Space")?

      Thanks so much for any advice,

      Malcolm
