|Summary||0005465: treat space (U+0020) as character|
|Description||Please do not treat the space character as empty room. For justification U+0020 could be scaled to the desired with.|
This would may help with 2 issues:
a) Select some text "1st sentences. 3rd sentences." and change the font (e.g. to bold). Now type in the middle, behind the space: "2nd sentence. "
Result: the new text is in the old font, not in the newly selected
b) Special fonts (e.g. underlined, dingbats like) would work out of the box.
a) That's not a problem with space. Currently you can only change style when you have something selected (will be improved).
b) font designers shouldnt do that...
We could implement that after the new text engine has stabilized, but it hasnt high priority to me. How should those space-glpyhs behave? centered or stretched? Layout engines usually make assumptions about spaces which break when the space glyph is not empty.
IMO opinion underlined fonts should leave the space empty and make the users type '_' if they want to underline between words. And Dingbats should put their glyphs at the appropiate Unicode codepoints, really.

How is this suppose to work with character styles? Using '_' also breaks word-wrap.
