Whilst it appears to me that this whole thread is off topic (started as a
"how to"), implementations that ignore lengths in word-spacing are 
explicitly considered compliant in the standards.

Mozilla have a policy of standards compliance, typically an attribute
of a non-dominant supplier; Microsoft appear, to  me, to have a policy
of minimising support costs and (unjustified) criticism when bad HTML
stops working, possibly also with one of matching commercial wants 
rather than W3C policy.
