I'm wondering whether AAT fonts, like Hoefler Text, are affected by 
\frenchspacing the same way that Computer Modern does (namely by making 
all spaces identical, whether or not they follow a period).

Here is the kind of stuff I get in a list of references, using LaTeX's 
thebibliography environment which includes \sfcode`\.=1000 which is one 
of the components of \frenchspacing:

Obviously not all spaces are identical. Or is it a manifestation of the 
fact that AAT fonts have no notion of an italic correction?

(I hope this message makes it to the list. My previous message of 
yesterday night, a response to the question about osxfonts.sty, is 
still waiting for the .mac SMTP server to send it.)
