Actually, I'm surprised you need the \space here...

To be more precise, "fontspec.sty" is my LaTeX package for an  
abstraction on top of the facilities provided by XeTeX, such as  
mapping, colour, letterspacing (wait for it), and AAT/OpenType font  
features. For Linux users, you can't use AAT features so the main  
advantage there is being able to specify features by name and not by  
OpenType feature code.
