Bonjour Rapha?l,

It works. But this is only a workaround imo. You have to go after 
each font. It can be very suitable in closed environments. But will 
not be sufficient for production use.

After having set my little book, I can say that Short Words is very 
fast at crunching lots of pages in seconds. We really need access to 
other non-breakable spaces, such as thin spaces, in that feature.

If the Team can allow it, the support for these spaces in Scribus 
would be a good thing to announce in Lyon! We are getting closer and 
closer to pro typographic level. Just a thought to share! ;-)

Au plaisir!
