This was reported as an enhancement, but because it causes content (i.e. consecutive spaces) to display and behave differently in the edit window than in the view window, I think it is more appropriate to regard it as a bug. Accordingly, I am upgrading this from "enhancement" to "minor".

This is going to be a pain to get the user interaction pattern right.
