Um, in en_US.UTF-8, I believe it is; U+00A0 is NO-BREAK SPACE according
to the Unicode documents I have. Of course, you could argue that's not
a space character, but I'm having trouble imagining what values of
"space character" that could be true of.
I know it is not a valid UTF-8 sequence. isspace() is supposed to be
passed a character code, not an octet which may or may not be part of a
character code's encoding, as I understand it. That most UTF-8
character codes cannot be passed to isspace() because they're outside
of unsigned char range - at least on NetBSD - doesn't invalidate this
as far as I can see.
