I'd b very happy if such a thing existed in CSS. In Poland it's considered
an error to put single-letter words like 'w' ('in'), 'z' ('with') etc. at
the end of the line. Clients often expect this to be fixed; in one project
we had to read the text from the backend and manually replace all spaces
after such words with non-breaking ones via JS on the client side. Such a
thing doesn't influence performance in a good way so I'd be glad if we
could just do it with plain CSS.
