comment How many spaces should come after a period/full stop?
FWIW I have no problem with typing entities in per se. I do — for em dashes so often it barely me takes longer than a single regular keystroke does.

Hm... Merriam-Webster agrees. I suppose I'll accept this despite my English geek friends' protestations that this is a bastardization of the word.

comment How much punctuation is appropriate when ending a sentence with a full-sentence quotation?
Just to be clear, it was very much intentional that "[my] question is specific to when the outer sentence ends at the same place as the quoted sentence."

comment What manual of style should I use for technical writing for US Federal Government documents?
could you use @Lord or similar in the future? @Torg doesn't trigger the notification system. I asked the meta question per your request, it's at meta.english.stackexchange.com/questions/35/…

comment Is there a correct gender-neutral, singular pronoun (“his” versus “her” versus “their”)?
I agree with @njd (reverse elitism is common in the US as well) but +1 anyways because the wording of this answer takes that into account.

comment What manual of style should I use for technical writing for US Federal Government documents?
Interesting question, but this is really about government work, not English language usage. You could just as easily ask which brand of pen to use while doing government work, or what make of car to lease.

comment What’s the rule for using “who” and “whom” correctly?
These sorts of tests work because "who" is for subjects and "whom" is for objects.
