RE: Two Spaces Punctuation Repeated

Placing 2 spaces after a period or full stop as we say in the UK is a
standard taught in typing/word processing classes an is not
grammatically incorrect.

Adrian, I also put two spaces in between sentences and MS Word never
identifies that as a grammatical error.  Now that I think of it Word
never announces spaces unless I put two spaces in between words like
"the boy". 
When I put three spaces in between sentences an error is announced.
