Yes. I do. As a hack, use empty leader:


It will draw a perfect empty block.
&#160; is now correctly processed as just a space, and a block
that only consists of a space (and no border/padding/margin) should
not leave a trace.

But better yet, use space-before, space-after on adjacent blocks
to leave white space in block-progression-dimension. This is the
right way.
