14.2 Named Whitespaces

There is a small number of whatever you want to name it. The look like named characters, but will be printed not always, or not at all.


Thin space:

d&thinsp;D ->d D


Emphasized space: d&emsp;D -> d D


Normal space: /d&ensp;D/ -> d D


No break space: A spaces at wich the line is not allowed to be broken. Two words separated by a nbsp will be treated by parser and mapper to be a single long one.


Suggest Hyphen: If the mapper is up to break a word, with has the shy tag inside, it will probably do the wordbreak at the place of the shy tag and place a hyphen instead. If no wordbreak is necessary the shy expands to nothging at all.
