The IE6 bug actually only occurs in combination with certains fonts that are
lacking the zwsp characters:
http://dunae.ca/2009/better-web-typography-with-spaces-and-hyphens/

I am not able to reproduce this bug - may be because the fonts have improved?

It is anyway purely an aficionado bug in a irrelevant web browser. (Aficionados
will be able to fix it - probably like this: <span
style="font-family:serif">&#x200b;</span>.)
