Well, says

  "Word spacing algorithms are user agent-dependent. Determining word
  boundary is typically done by detecting white space characters. There
  are however many scripts and writing systems that do not separate
  their words by any character (like Japanese, Chinese, Thai, etc...),
  detecting word boundaries in these cases require dictionary based
  algorithms that may not be supported by all user agents. Word spacing
  is also influenced by justification (see the 'text-align' property)."
