This used to be a FAQ but it hasn't appeared so often recently.

&nbsp; is the way that human HTML authors like to write the Unicode
non-breaking-space character, hex A0. That's because the character isn't
available on a keyboard and can't be distinguished from an ordinary space
character when displayed by a text editor. But when you generate the HTML
automatically, you don't need to generate it as &nbsp;, you can just
generate the non-breaking-space character directly. The easiest way to do
that is to write it in your stylesheet as &#xA0;
