Sentence spacing


Is one space or two spaces used after a sentence, when writing for e-books and on the Internet for websites vs. a paper book?

This is a question of style, not grammar.  For a really solid answer, you should refer to the appropriate style guide for your purpose.  It is my understanding (much to my chagrin) that a single space is used more often than a double space.  I'm still old school and have not been able to rid myself of the habit of hitting that space key twice.
