text-ws-02-t and nbsp glyph

I wonder if the text-ws-02-t.svg[2] test is correct.

The testcase text-ws-02-t.svg[2] uses the SVGFreeSansASCII font, which doesn't have a glyph for the nonbreaking space. This causes a fontswitch in Opera, and the second line therefore looks different from the first line.

Should an SVGFont claim to have the nonbreaking-space glyph even though it doesn't if there is a space glyph?

I think the test should either not use nbsp or we need to add the nbsp glyph to the SVGFreeSansASCII font.
