And I don't think that can be done without the non-breaking space entity (or wrapping the entire passage in pre tags).

The current method may not be perfect, but I think it's the best approach: those who understand the guts of things can fix the occasional snafu, and those who never leave Book View don't have to wonder why the extra spaces they type keep disappearing.
They will soon learn that this is a bad (HTML) practice
