I'm not sure if this would be considered special markup, but the traditional way to do this is to use a non-breaking space instead of a white space. Depending on you encoding, you may need to use an entity reference for the character. In Unicode the reference is   I haven't tried this in XEP, but I know this works in other areas of our document pipeline. I hope this helps.

Subject: [xep-support] keep together/text fitting question
I'm looking for ideas on a "smart" keep-together.within-line
The problem is I have a series of sentences that end with a space then a question mark in a marketing flyer. If the sentence is slightly too long, the question mark is pushed to the second line by itself. I can't use keep-together.within-line for the whole sentence, because if the sentence should be two lines long, it jams all the text together onto 1 line. I don't want to force the editors to arbitrarily connect the last word of the sentence and the question mark with special markup. Per Marketing, I can't get rid of the space between the last word of the sentence and the question mark.
Here is the text ?
will get rendered as
Here is the text
On the other hand, it is ok if a longer sentence goes to 2 (or more) lines as long as the question mark doesn't get left by itself.
Any help is appreciated!
