I have just been trying to replace
a plain space by a nbsp, mapping 
a simple char replacement function over

With characters I can do it using the
?Unicode? char number.

(define (f ch)
   (if (char=? ch #\space) #\U-00A0 ch))

Not sure, but it would appear 'better' in
some way to have used &nbsp;

Is there an 'entity->character' function
(of some description).
sounds a bit daft, because surely that's what Jade does?

In this usage, Jade moaned if I tried the standard 
entity defn from isonum.ent.

What's the alternative (assuming there is one and
I don't know where to find it - the normal case :-(

Also, since I was using the entity (or failing to)
in Jade, is the style-sheet.dtd the right place to 
put an entity that I want to use in the style sheet?

TIA, DaveP
