I guess you are still discussing the non-breakable spaces, e.g.

  h1 {   text-align: center }

To center the text in <h1> is a bug, browsers that don't are good
browsers, others are broken. Try to validate the above style sheet
in the W3C CSS Validator, it won't validate. &nbsp; is no whitespace
character in CSS.
