comment Disabling interword spacing for periods following capital letters
This solution would work, though I'd recommend putting in an \xspace to avoid yet another spacing annoyance. Unfortunately, I use enough acronyms in my work that it becomes a bit burdensome. Alternatively, I could define individual acronyms via newcommand, but again, it winds up adding formatting bulk to my document.

comment Disabling interword spacing for periods following capital letters
egreg, you are right, I was not entirely precise in my question. I do not use periods to denote an acronym (e.g., "NASA" rather than "N.A.S.A."). If an acronym ends a sentence, it naturally is followed by a period. ("I work for NASA. Therefore I use too many acronyms.") Barbara brings up initials, which is an exception that I hadn't thought of. That may make this problem too complex for a simple solution like I'd envisioned.
