Well, if you only need to send the space to [text2d], then perhaps you can 
just generate it with objects and let GEM handle the rest, and never save 
the character in message boxes.

It will be either "194 160" for utf-8, or "160" for latin-1 and for 
"unencoded unicode".

I think that I first had started with a different kind of nbsp that took 
three bytes, and this wasn't understood on OSX, and I changed it to the 
normal nbsp I've been talking about so far, and it became cross-platform.

I don't remember what it is like on Windows.
