Amaya 8.7.4 for PC Windows Xp.

The character NBSP (non-breaking space, #160) is not displayed when viewing the Web page's source code in EditPad, MS Note/WordPad and Firefox 1.04 View Source.
The NBSP character is replaced, it seems, with a normal space (#32).

The NBSP character is generated (in Amaya) by Ctrl + Space key, and is indicated in Amaya View Source as a Tilde(-like?) character.

When editing a Web page (created in Amaya) with a text editor, the NBSP is saved as a normal space.

The W3C Validator also show a normal space in the 'Source Listing'.
