It would be nice to have a check, that there is no space before a colon, at least for some languages, where it's applicable.
For example, correct sentence is:
“There was only one possible explanation: the train had never arrived.”
“There was only one possible explanation : the train had never arrived.”
English Wikipedia says:
“In print, a thin space is traditionally placed before a colon and a thick space after it. In English-language modern high-volume commercial printing, no space is placed before a colon and a single space is placed after it. In French-language typing and printing, the traditional rules are preserved.”
So, probably it would be correct, to check, whether there is a thick space before a colon (not sure, what's the Unicode code for this character) or no space at all.
