Mediawiki already converts normal spaces to non-breaking spaces when they're in front of some punctuations, whatever the language. It should just do the same with percent signs.

I don't think mediawiki should *add* a space before a percent sign because it'd be impossible to cite english text with the right typography.

Can you do this for units, too?

It should probably be discussed elsewhere first (what units, exceptions, etc.). Maybe somewhere in wikipedia's talks or in another bug report.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
