Joe Kimble on where to put citations

Judging from reader comments, the most controversial topics discussed on this blog are (in no particular order):

  • Full justification of text versus a ragged-right margin
  • Two spaces after each sentence (a.k.a. French spacing) versus just one space
  • Citations in text versus in footnote
