To quote selectively: <QUOTE> To promote interoperability, SGML requires that each application (including HTML) specify its document character set. A document character set consists of: A Repertoire: A set of abstract characters Code positions: A set of integer references to characters in the repertoire. The ASCII character set is not sufficient for a global information system such as the Web, so HTML uses the much more complete character set called the Universal Character Set (UCS), defined in [ISO10646]. Authoring tools (e.g., text editors) may encode HTML documents in the character encoding of their choice, and the choice largely depends on the conventions used by the system software. These tools may employ any convenient encoding that covers most of the characters contained in the document, provided the encoding is correctly labeled. Occasional characters that fall outside this encoding may still be represented by character references. These always refer to the document character set, not the character encoding. </QUOTE> I read that as saying that in HTML as in XML,   is the non-breaking space character regardless what character encoding is in use.
