No, he said a *literal* non-breaking space. The ` ` entity,
in case you didn’t know, is not special; like all entities, it
merely stands for a character that also has a regular character
code: 160 in the ISO-Latin-* encodings and in Unicode (U+00A0).
If you enter such a character directly in the file, Markdown.pl
will interpret the line as non-empty, but it will show up as
empty when the browser renders the non-breaking space.
