Well, my processor (msxml3) translates <xsl:text>&#xa0;</xsl:text> into a
regular space, which means that the browser will gladly use that space for
breaking long lines. Exactly what I don't want.
<xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes">&amp;nbsp;</xsl:text> works though

You can't insert entities into a tree, the tree always holds the
expansion of the entity. In the case of &nbsp;, the expansion is the
single character xA0, so you can insert it by writing
<xsl:text>&#xa0;</xsl:text>. It might or might not be serialized as
&nbsp;, depending on your processor, but the browser will do the right
thing with it regardless.
