Yes, it won't treat these as spaces because they're not really
spaces. But, of course, they are white-space! To make the change you
want, edit htdig/ and change the nbsp line to have a
space on the right-hand side. The downside is that since this
involves how the indexer creates the database, you'll need to reindex
after making the change.

I'm afraid you can't really do this. The bad_words has precedent.
