Subject: SP or emsp
One of the items in the HTML+ spec that would really help WWW typographers
is the SP element, which might alternately be specified as ISO 8879
Publishing Entities &emsp;.  Do browser developers have any preference
on this point, and would this em-space element or entity be easy
to implement?

Dave, did you intend something different by SP than &emsp; or &ensp;?

As an example of where it would be useful, I'd like to remove the 
dashes in the top-level TOC of the online Whole Internet Catalog,
which are there now to get some separation between the in-line hotlinks
(design suggestions welcome).
