To Insert a Nonbreaking Space
Some compound words, such as proper nouns, dates, units of time and measure, abbreviations, and geographic
destinations, should not be divided at the end of a line. These words either should fi t as a unit at the end of a line or
be wrapped together to the next line.
Word provides two special characters to assist with this task: nonbreaking space and nonbreaking hyphen. A
nonbreaking space is a special space character that prevents two words from splitting if the fi rst word falls at the
end of a line. Similarly, a nonbreaking hyphen is a special type of hyphen that prevents two words separated by a
hyphen from splitting at the end of a line.
