The latter, did so but doesn't anymore.

since those are rather uncommonly-used character entities, you can't
rule out causing issues in other types of user-agents (such as, say,
screen readers). And, at the end of the day... that's still hacking the
content to achieve a presentational effect.
I don't think so.

But I'm generally with Axel. I wouldn't do this at all. But if you don't mind clutter, you could as well wrap all periods in a span and set their right margin to whatever you want.

I've also seen a JS solution. I think it involved jQuery or something similar. I wouldn't do that either, but it's out there somewhere.
