Good point.  That's pretty much the final nail in the coffin.  I'll
specify something with nbsp's here, although I don't know how I'll
make it work when runs of spaces span multiple text nodes.  I'll add a
note advising authors to use white-space: pre-wrap, although I doubt
many will see or follow it.
