Two would be okay, imo, three at most, but eight would be far too
Since spaces seem to be the issue - I think, although I still fail to
see the cause of the problem <Is this another issue caused by Word-
itis?> not the issue as described by Pm - a trivial markup would be
okay, say, ";; " (semicolon, semicolon, space), something that can be
achieved quickly (e.g. a non-shifted, repeated key) and doesn't require
closure. This is still a pain, though, to be honest, for other reasons.
