I don't *think* that's significant.
While it isn't conventional practice in English writing, to
leave extra space between the end of a sentence and the terminal
punctuation mark, it does seem to be commonplace among French
writers; (although UK based, I work for a French company, and
I see this all the time).
I suspect that the extra space seen in some places are a relic
of the style established by Julien Lecomte, who I guess *is*
French, and to whom we owe an enormous debt of gratitude for
much of the present FAQ -- thank you, Julien :-)
I haven't taken the time to completely review the FAQ, but
when I do notice one of these extra spaces, I tend to remove
it, to bring the format more into line with conventional
English writing style.
