Is a period after an abbreviation the same as an end of sentence period?
Hi, I often use the abbreviations e.g. and i.e. when writing. The period after these abbreviations makes LaTeX to think that it's an end of a sentence and thus starts the next word that follows with some unnecessary indentation or advance. Is there a way to automatically instruct LaTeX to not do this? I believe that one can always design a macro and then use some command like \kern (I'm only guessing here). But before I try to make such a macro, I would like to know if more elegant solutions exist.
Thanks a lot
