Converting Old English Poetry

Greetings,

I'm using BookDesigner to convert Old English poetry to LRF, or more to the point I'm having real trouble.

Each line needs to be broken into two half-lines, for example:

Welund him be wurman.....wrŠces cunnade,
anhydig eorl earfo■a.....dreag,
hŠfde him to gesi■■e.....sorge ond longa■,
wintercealde wrŠce;.....wean oft onfond,
si■■an hine Ni­had on.....nede legde,
swoncre seonobende.....on syllan monn.
■Šs ofereode,.....■isses swa mŠg!

where the ..... represents spaces.

So far I have not found a way to force BD to honour the spaces between the half-lines.

Non-breaking spaces (   ) just get collapsed into a single whitespace.
Using CSS (whitespace: pre) is ignored.
I suppose I could embed transparent gifs, but that's not really satisfactory.

Any suggestions?

beo­ ge gesunde
