Generate a Unicode nonbreaking space in Ruby

Regular spaces and non-breaking spaces are hard to distinguish for a human.
Instead of using the   HTML entity or code like " " # this is an nbsp, use a well-named helper method instead.

Copy
def nbsp [160].pack('U*') end

160 is the ASCII character code of a non-breaking space.
