    The bottom line is that SP+vowel and NBSP+vowel are prescribed by the
    Unicode Standard, and if they don't work (at least the former; for the
    latter, one can weasel out by claiming conformity with earlier versions
    of the Standard) the system is broken.

    and a rabbi who lets them do it       
    isn't a man.    --Jewish saying
