Spelling[fontem recensere]

I'm to lazy to correct this, so I'm just leaving a note:
Abbreviations are spelled with a space after dots, better with a small non-breaking space. So it's rather like "e. g." instead of English "e.g." or "eg".
Maybe as an addition: Even in English abbreviations are or at least were spelled with dots and spaces, like "A. D." in older English books. —80.133.99.105 20:41, 24 Augusti 2015 (UTC)

This is a point on which English style has been changing so fast that the rules cited above seem quaint. Through the 1980s & 1990s, the Chicago Manual of Style used to insist on the periods (and no space!) in the adjective U.S. but has recently begun to allow US. Likewise, Ph.D. (lacking a space for decades!) is becoming PhD. Wholly lowercased abbreviations (e.g. and i.e. and such) have long since abandoned the space, but they're retaining their periods, for now. IacobusAmor (disputatio) 11:20, 25 Augusti 2015 (UTC)
