Ok, attach screenshot of KCharSelect (analog to Character Select in Windows, 
but in KDE2)
As you see, char 0xA0 is some kind of whitespace.
 I have no clue how it appeared in in that HTML file.
But 0xA0 is not a control character. 
BTW, are CSS rules *Unicode-ready*? For example, can I write class name in 
Russian (Cyrillic) and be sure that browser will be able to handle it?

Screenshot represent Unicode plane 0, Cyrillic is in Unicode plane 4.

Now it seems I have to reboot from Linux to Windows and check *how* this file 
will be displayed in Win98. And what MS IE will do with it.
If MS IE can handle this example, than it's problem of Opera and Mozilla 
(they need to fix).

Stay tuned ;-)
