Could you tell me how you do this, Patricia? Whenever I try to replace a space in the guillemets with a non-breaking space in MS Word it changes the guillemets to quotes for some infuriating reason and I can't prevent it nor recover it except through undo. I ended up removing the spaces altogether as the Sony reader often leaves them orphaned.
