That's what I suspect, too.  In fact I'm not really sure if the larger
sentence-end space is really a *typographical* convention, and not
just a *typewriter* convention.  Before posting the original message I
checked the Chicago Manual of Style, but I couldn't find anything on
that topic.

But I'm careful about making statements on the typography of foreign
languages (OTOH, "sbagliando s'impara" :-)
