Answer question first:
As you've noticed HTML doesn't recognise sentences and neither does
CSS. Aside from marking up your sentences as <p>s and then making
them inline (very untidy) there is no way I know of to achieve this
In modern typesetting the kerning table for the full stop and the
space accounts for the correct gap. A double space at the end of
sentence is IMNSHO incorrect. Double spaces hark back to manual
typewriters and are an anachronism. I argue this regularly with one
of my clients who learned to type in the 70s - she disagrees but the
double spaces get deleted before press time all the same!
Similarly onscreen it is my assertion that one space is sufficient.
Sorry to be so opinionated to a first post!
