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

I don't think this is a Docbook 5 issue, but an issue with the XSL-FO processor.  You might take a peek inside the generated .fo file to see if your narrow space character is there.  If so, then the XSL stylesheet is working and the XSL-FO processor is not handling it.  What XSL-FO processor are you using?  The FOP processor included with Oxygen?
There are a lot of space characters in Unicode (see http://www.sagehill.net/docbookxsl/SpecialChars.html#SpecialSpaces), and not all XSL-FO processors handle all of them.  It may be that some processors expect to find the character in the current font.

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.
