The "VISIBLE SPACE" from U+2423 is the right choice. Good fonts have  
it (I wonder why Doulos SIL or Charis SIL don't have it ...), even  
some in Mac OS X. If you miss some glyphs it might be a good idea to  
install James Kass' CODE200x fonts: http://home.att.net/~jameskass/.  
Or CaslonRoman by George Williams, author of FontForge. (Other  
choices: Cardo, Junicode)
