The compression of blanks is a side effect of the way HTML works - if
you put a string of spaces into HTML markup, they are displayed as a
single space. If you want what is called a 'non-breaking space,' you
have to use the special character ' ' instead of a regular space
It's a question for the designers as to what would be the ideal
behaviour when a user enters a string of spaces into the edit field.

This is a good question - another one for the designers, I suspect :-)
