	There isn't a named entity (an oversight, I guess),  but it
	is in the definition of white space, in its numeric form.

9.1 White space
The document character set [p.43] includes a wide variety of white space
characters.
Many of these are typographic elements used in some applications to produce
particular visual spacing effects. In HTML, only the following characters
are defined
as white space characters:
ASCII space (&#x0020;)
ASCII tab (&#x0009;)
ASCII form feed (&#x000C;)
	Zero-width space (&#x200B;)
