Two spaces in a row should always render the wider space at font transitions
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

If there are two spaces in wikitext where one font is wider than the other, the narrow space is always chosen automatically, but the wider space should always be chosen instead (automatically).

For publications I try to remember to manually add &nbsp, on both side of the entry, because currently the inline entries look cramped to me.
Please preview this on the wiki:
See how this<kbd> phrase is staged </kbd>and again, how it looks<kbd>&nbsp;with manually added&nbsp;</kbd>overrides that could be made effortless.

Manually added whitespace properly stages such entries.

If the font changes, the spacing should follow. I opened T124000 for vertical changes.
