FAQ. You want to get the no-break space character. In HTML you had the
unnecessary "nbsp" entity that you could reference if you couldn't or didn't
know how to type the character directly (alt-0160 on WinNT/2K/XP) and didn't
know that you could write &#160; or &#xA0;. Well, XML is the same, but doesn't
have the "nbsp" entity. So just write &#160; or &#xA0; and let the XSLT
processor worry about how to serialize it in the output (it will most likely
emit "&nbsp;" for you).

See for more.
