+[[!meta title="True double spacing"]]
+[[!tag imported_PyBlosxom tech latex]]
+
+The standard way to do double spacing which everyone recommends as clean
+and neat is to use the `setspace` package since it doesn't double-space
+your footnotes which is generally desired.
+
+Turns out that (a) this isn't the typographical standard of
+double-spacing (b) it's not the same as Microsoft Word which everyone
+else's extended essays/dissertations/theses will be written in.
+
+So instead use this:
+
+ \usepackage[doublespacing]{setspace}
+ \setstretch{2}
+
+and if you change the spacing be sure to do it again:
+
+ \singlespacing
+ [...]
+ \doublespacing\setstretch{2}
