After spending some time thinking about the reason that you originally made
no-break spaces non-stretchy, I think that the users in question were
mis-using the character. Using no-break space for forced indenting is
surely not what was intended either by the definers of ISO 8859-1 nor, by
extension, the Unicode Technical Committee, nor (I think) by the XSL FO
designers. There are more appropriate ways to accomplish the task (such as
using a combination of white-space-treatment="preserve",
linefeed-treatment="preserve", and white-space-collapse="false" in XSL FO,
coupled with ordinary #x20 spaces).
I encourage you to give serious consideration to Jirka's request to make
#xA0 an otherwise-ordinary space that does not allow linebreaking on either
side of it.
Hope this helps,
