    In English there is no space. Other European languages prefer the space, but of the approximately eleventy billion sentences I've read in English, none of them separate the final word and the question mark (or exclamation mark) with a space. I only ever see that from non-native speakers online.

  • To elaborate on what Robusto said, by "other European languages" he really meant "exactly one European language".

  • @Robusto neither did I. Which is why I never even mentioned the French.
