    LM> A fixed-length space between two words that will not grow even if justification needs to add spaces to justify the line (the justification algorithm has to chose other interword spaces).

    OK, that's exactly what I was talking about.

    LM> Would the nbsp ( ) work ?

    Well, it would. But it's OK only if you need space as wide as current
    font character, otherwise this solution became quite inflexible.

    No, it shouldn't. Make sure that you have no spaces before and after

    LM> Yes, maybe. I did not try keeps.

    Actually there is no need for keeps. Just make sure there is no spaces
    between leader and words.
