Actually, if you take roc's explanation that a break at a space is
considered to be *at* the space (i.e. inside it) and not before or
after the space character, then it's consistent. Basically a space
is treated like two characters with a breakpoint in between. Given
that interpretation, wrapping <nowrap> around a space then gives
the &nbsp; behavior.
