the shorthand property white-space="pre" should be used or its expanded
If you do that the bug I was referring to would show because
white-space-treatment="preserve" is not correctly implemented.
In order to preserve all spaces, we could use the elements that are now
generated for a nbsp:
glue (elastic or not, according to the alignment)
They are not suppressed and they do not allow a break, so I think they
should fit quite well this situation too, when white-space-treatment =
"preserve" and wrap-option="no-wrap".
If wrap-option="wrap", however, we must add some penalties in order to
allow a break between spaces; we must be careful, as if there are 3 spaces
between two words, there are 4 possible breaks (ignoring, at the moment,
unicode breaking rules), so we just cannot add a penalty before or after
the other elements.
Is this ok, or am I missing some important detail?
