ALL4’s: Is That Your Final Answer?

Posted: December 29th, 2011

Author: All4 Staff 

The “Is That Your Final Answer” question has been around for a year now and we would

like to get your feedback on this feature. So send us an email about what you think. We will collect all comments received from now until the end of the year and randomly select one commenter to receive a special gift. Thanks for playing along with us, and our best to everyone for a great new year.

Last Month’s Answer and Winner:

The answers to November’s “Is That Your Final Answer” question came fast and furious as a record number of respondents vied to the penultimate qualifier for the $500

American Express gift card. As the dust settled, Ann Modro Borowski of J&J correctly deducted that an emergency generator is that often overlooked item that requires consideration from an air permitting perspective. Congratulations to Ann and all of the others who supplied an answer.


We had a very spirited debate recently regarding the need to use a double space or single

space after a period. The argument for a single space was bolstered by the fact that most fonts are proportional fonts, which means that characters are different width

s depending on the space available. The double space is a remnant of old-school typewriter mono-spaced fonts where every character takes up the same amount of space regardless of the space available.   The double space proponents held the day, especially after showing the pitfall of the proportional font spacing contained in the Section 114 U.S. EPA Information Collection Request (ICR) shown below. What is the pitfall?

“information on combustion units gathered for the Industrial Combustion Coordinated Rulemaking, complimented by additional survey data received from facilities cornbusting non-fossil materials.”
