 Even when not using the WYSIWYG editor, the "nbsp" entity (non-breakable
 space) is removed by WordPress even when it is manually inserted by the
 user. This is very important to keep it for languages such as French
 because good writing rules require that you insert a non-breakable space
 before any of ":", ";", "!" and "?".

 Translating the non-breakable space into an ordinary space may lead
 WordPress to display the punctuation sign at the beginning of a line,
 which is obviously incorrect.
