It doesn't. &amp; produces a sngle & character in the input.
When serialised to the output, an & will be written out a &amp;.

Following this by nbsp; changes nothing.

use &#160; that produces a non breaking space in the input, it will be
serialised in some way that is legal xml or html, the exact choice is
left to the xslt engine, it might use &nbsp; or &#160; or just character
