According to HTML, a space is a space regardless of font. If you need to
indent, you would use whatever style method is provided for indenting. If
you are lining up columns, use either <pre> or <table>. What are you
looking to do? If you are trying to force two spaces between sentences, you
could follow each period with a nonbreaking space; but you break
typographical law if you do that. ;-)
