Displaying properly narrow no-break-space (u202F)

Hi

Some readers using iBooks on IPAD reported to me they cannot display properly these above characters, used frequently in French texts.
http://www.fileformat.info/info/unic...202f/index.htm

As I do not use IPAD myself, could someone tell me if this information is still relevant to solve this problem?

1. - Using a text editor, create a file having exactly this name:
Quote:
com.apple.ibooks.display-options.xml
and including exactly the following text:

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<display_options>
 <platform name="*">
     <option name="specified fonts">true</option>
 </platform>
</display_options>
2. Open the EPUB using the Calibre editor and import this file. The Editor will put it in the META/INF of the EPUB and this should allow the IPAD to read embedded polices.

3. Still using the Calibre editor, also insert this line in the .opf file:

Code:
<meta property="ibooks:specified-fonts">true</meta>
