%D The nobreakspace is special as it needs to keep track of the space being
%D flexible. Another option is to use space (glue) nodes and tag them as characters
%D instead. No big deal but takes a moment of coding. So, as a prelude we
%D tag the nobreakspace only. Interesting is that it also fits better in the
%D tagging mechanism.
%D
%D But we need to do some checking as from then on we no longer can compare
%D them in a string. So this needs thinking. Not that we can compare the
%D nobreakspace now anyway.

% This does not work as spaceskip is only inserted in the case of raggedleft
% and we need to be able to figure out all of them. Which makes me wonder ...
% can't we just always set spaceskip to some value?

% Making them active is also not an option unless we do that in every
% catcode vector.
