One space or two after sentences?

Over at Daily Writing Tips, Maeve Maddox provides historical perspective on a divisive question: do you type one space or two after sentences?

My opinion and practice: one space. If you disagree, no big deal. Unless you’re trying to squeeze a brief into a page limit, in which case those unnecessary extra spaces are costing you some valuable page space without improving the appearance of your text.
