well that's the correct thing to do. You can only use &nbsp; in an XML
file if you define the entity to be something, and if you want it to be
the same as HTML you would have to define it to be &#xa0; in which case
using &nbsp; and using &#xa0; would be the same thing.

But are you really expecting to find paragraphs in your source document
that consist of _only_ a non breaking space. They would be really
strange paragraphs!
