The question came up during the test case development/review[1] for text-transform:fullwidth[2].

Unicode defines U+3000 IDEOGRAPHIC SPACE is the full-width counterpart of U+0020 SPACE, so I guess it should be done. The primary use case for the property value is to typeset Latin characters and digits like ideographic characters as written in the spec, so transforming U+0020 to U+3000 makes sense to me given the use case.

But U+0020 is a little special in HTML/CSS and therefore I'd like to confirm if doing so doesn't harm anything badly.

Any opinions appreciated.
