one space or two?

One space or two after a full stop?  Many would have us believe two spaces is WRONG, and was introduced due to eeeevil typewriters, and we should return to the One Right Way. Heraclitean River delves into the history: it always was two spaces, until the eeeevil publishers and their Linotype machines demanded something simpler, and rewrote history!

Use one, use two, as you see fit – but do be consistent!
