Logically,   should be a hard space, but a mistake was made a long 
time ago and I hesitate to change it now. Traditionally paragraph 
formatters assume they can break lines where they will and are allowed 
to mess with space.

Do you want line breaking and multiple spaces? The XPreFormatted class 
is similar to Paragraph, but does no line breaking.
