I think it is useful to realize that in HTML (and in most text formats) a space character may not translate to a space on the screen. In particular, except in HTML <pre> elements, you will usually find that whitespace is "collapsed": which means that "a b" and "a b" will show up the same. The same is also true of new lines: a newline followed by some tabs will also typically be drawn on screen as if there had been a single space. (Unless the text is East Asian, in which case it will probably be drawn as if there had been no space.) The correct thing to use is the non-breaking space. Cheers Rick Jelliffe
