Non breaking spaces?

Is there a reason behind why, while in Book view, Sigil sometimes uses non-breaking spaces [ ] and other times uses normal spaces?

I haven't figured out the logic there yet.

You mean when pressing the space bar on your keyboard, the Book View sometimes inserts a nbsp?

Weird. I have no idea why QtWebKit decides to to that. It either has a good reason, or it's a bug.

I honestly don't know.

that was my first thought as well but i seem to recall that that wasn't always the case (i mean, i think there were some where there was absolutely no good reason to put one, unless maybe i am overlooking something, which is also possible). unfortunately i've got no examples handy though.
