The 'white-space-treatment' property has license to change the characters
underlying a presentation.  The 'word-spacing' property has license only to
change the presentation, as in the glyphs and metrics used.  If I have an
element with "word-spacing: none" and I perform a copy operation and then
paste, I better get the spaces with the rest of the text.
