Subject: Quad (was Spaces)
I think the various points of view have been well represented on
this issue, and fairly economically, too.  Let me make a practical
proposal:  I think I would be satisfied with a single white space
character (or entity), something like Tex's \quad, that is, an en
in the current font.  Is this something we can all accept as needed
even if some see it as impure SGML?
