With another version of gvim I have several charaters. That's not very
What a pity there is no explicit way to write it such as &nbsp, or
\00C2\00A0 but hey.

Never heard of this rule for french or never paid attention but I'm fine
with it if this is so.
This string exists in native devenum and thus is subject to translation so
I just have to
find why regedit displays it badly when editing the registry. Wine traces
functions also
but I would it is more normal.
