defines white space as including nbsp (U+00A0).  
http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-text/#white-space-rules 
defines white space as not including nbsp.

Word-to-filtered-HTML conversion tends to include 
a lot of extra nbsp's that I don't want.  I would 
like to be able to specify that bikeshedding also 
included nbsp's, or, if you wanted to make it more 
generic, the ability to specify a list of characters 
I also wanted bikeshedding to apply to.

Yes, I know ideally removal of extra nbsp's from the 
source document is something that I would do, but it 
is currently a manual process and time-consuming.  
If nbsp is good enough for text-decoration-skip, 
why not make it available to other properties?


Hope this helps,
