Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] how put narrow non-breaking spaces before punctuation marks

This is just a character in the XML stream, so DocBook is not the culprit.
It's rather an issue in the processing toolchain, or the glyph missing in the font used to render this character...

Do you know whether I can get a narrower one ?
The *narrow* non-breaking space (http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/202f/index.htm) seems not to work with docbook5.

I don't know if oXygen provides a shortcut, but in DocBook 5 you have to
insert the unicode character for non breaking space, that is &#160; in
the XML code.
