Hi everyone, need some help here -

Have a line of text, and I want there to be a word spacing of 5px. The css class looks like so:

.nav {
color : #FFF;
font: 10px Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;
word-spacing: 10px;
}

However in ie5.5 it doesn't work! There appears to be zero change to the word spacing. NS6 on the other hand, renders it perfectly. Is css word-spacing not supported in ie5.5, or is my code buggy?

If it's not supported, is there another method to adjust the word spacing?

Thanks for any help!

Matt..

Not supported.
No other way other than ridiculous workarounds, make sure the design holds up without it is your best bet.

Thanks anyways!
