This is not so trivial as it seems since 0xA0 is not   in all
encodings. For instance, it is not in VISCII (Vietnamese).
Therefore Gtk should check beforehands whether or not we're using a
ISO-8859-x encoding (could somebody confirm all ISO-8859-x encodings 
have 0xA0 =   ?) or some closely related encoding (Windows ANSI).

When will we all be using ISO-10646 / Unicode?
