Output was HTML. The charset would have been whetever MSXML3 put on it
automatically (probably UTF-16). I just needed a series of spaces that
will not be collapsed. Is that not what nbsp is for?

Not sure, but I don't think that was the case. I have a vague memory
of me checking the Encoding setting in the browser (IE) and it being
in automatic.
