In that regard, your text currently says:

   "The CSS escape for a no-break space is <code>\A0</code>."

So why did you not include the "semicolon" here? Like this:

   "The CSS escape for a no-break space is <code>\A0 </code>."

You should perhaps also use a background or border or another stylish 
effect (that also works for CSS escapes ...) to make the different 
escapes you demonstrate throughout the text distinguishable for the 
readers.
