When using paraphrases I often see extra spaces added to the sentences. Does this provide more security than a single line of attached character text?

    Technically, any character is as good as any other. Practically, some characters are better than others. A space is generally as good as any other character in a given position. It's much more useful when it actually increases the length of the passphrase. That adds exponential complexity. It's also more useful when onei sused in anun expected position. That reduces possibilities of guessing. -- Tom
