That's what I thought and I was really surprised to hear my
tutor say they use spaces.  She's a young woman (25 I think
but who can tell, has two really cute young kids) and quite
well educated.  And she was quite emphatic.

Could this be something that is in flux at the moment?  I
expect not or both of you would have mentioned it.
