This is really great news!!

The font in the Éfélé book is weird, it's probably a subset, but FontForge does not open it correctly (the characters don't match their names).
I think Éric Muller uses a subset built on demand according to the glyphs used in the book.The fonts are also probably obfuscated.

To add the #8239 character, just open your font in FontForge, select the space character (#32, before the !), copy it (Ctrl+C), go to #8239 (View -> Go to, write 8239), paste (Ctrl+V), double-click the character and drag the vertical line somewhat to the left, to make the space narrower. I believe the non-breaking property is implicit, but maybe something else should be done.
I MUST learn it. As you can imagine, I will be very busy these days...
Maybe you can expect some messages...
