I never knew this! Is there any reason as to why they space their punctuation as such? I always wrote my French reports with traditional punctuation conventions, and this was never commented on. It's probably because it's an extremely miniscule thing to nitpick, but what's to gain from using these extra spaces?

It's true, this is a particularity of written French. :D

I am French and I can confirm that even for us, there are no options in the software to position punctuation correctly. In fact, it's a habit to get into.
