I confirm that the space between text and french quotation marks should be
"1/2 cadratin" wide, that being precisely 0.5em.

Source: Lexique des Règles Typographiques en usage à l'Imprimerie Nationale
         ISBN : 2743304820
         "Ponctuation" pages 145-149
         "Citations"   pages 48-53
         "Cadratin"    page  37
         "Corps"       page  57

Hope that helps ;-)
