Spaces

The following table lists the space, non-breaking space, and fixed width spaces recognised by TopLeaf. All fixed space widths are expressed as a fraction of an em (nominally, the font point size):

Code Name Width
U+0020 SPACE The width of an interword space is determined by the current minimum and maximum interword space width.
U+00A0 NO-BREAK SPACE The non-breaking counterpart of a SPACE (U+0020).
U+2002 EN SPACE 1/2 em
U+2003 EM SPACE 1 em
U+2004 3-PER-EM SPACE 1/3 em
U+2005 4-PER-EM SPACE 1/4 em
U+2006 6-PER-EM SPACE 1/6 em
U+2007 FIGURE SPACE 1/2 em
U+2008 PUNCTUATION SPACE width of a FULL STOP (U+002E) in the current font.
U+2009 THIN SPACE 1/4 em
U+200A HAIR SPACE 1/8 em
U+200B ZERO WIDTH SPACE 0
U+200C ZERO WIDTH NON-JOINER 0
U+202F NARROW NO-BREAK SPACE 1/2 em to the current maximum interword space width.
U+205F MATHEMATICAL SPACE 1/4 em
U+2060 WORD JOINER 0
[Note] Note

In TopLeaf, the width of a thin space (U+2009) is equal to the width of a 1/4 em space. The Unicode standard defines the width of a thin space as being either 1/5 em or 1/6 em. You can redefine the width of a thin space if this is a requirement of your document style.
