I have been fixing it on all the major CA highways/freeways as I go through editing/updated the Exit numbers on each route. I have not attacked I-5 thinking it had so many people travel that road that it must have already been done. That is what I get for assuming.
Understandable, I think. In fact, we now know from this thread: that we've never come to agreement on which is right, and some believed we need the 'space in the name' format to work around a now-fixed bug. So I guess we come full circle.
Interstates, no space after the "I", then?
The official way is to remove the space. The standard was changed back in January or February. However, it doesn't mean you have to go and change every interstate segment in the U.S. It just means that if you build a new interstate, it should conform to the standard. And a good editor should be updating it while cleaning up existing interstates, unless you're hellbent on not losing your shields for a few months (indefinitely).
