I have always understood nbsp to stand for non-breaking-space. Correct?
So why would firefox 1.0.4 render the image below the text? I don't care that the column width may not be wide enough to fit the image - it should still adhere to my instruction to place the image on the same line! Surely?
It is confusing. does indeed mean non-breaking space, but that's not what it does. As you know browsers collapse white space, a dozen white spaces equals one in display. But forces whitespaces, so forces three white spaces.
