I would recommend you to map &ensp; to a single space and &emsp; to
two spaces. The main thing is that these spaces *are not collapsed*
unlike the normal treatment of whitespace in SGML documents.

This means don't map them to spaces at too low a level or your browser
will be unable to treat them differently from normal whitespace.
