I have processed by mistake some code including the non-breaking space 
symbol. It has been processed as quite a large non breaking space, so 
the reaction is the one expected. Anyway, you shouldn’t use this symbol: 
XeTeX process the code and add non breaking space symbol when needed, 
and it uses the rules of presentation of the language in which the text 
you are processing is written. Using non breaking space symbol leads to 
a document no totally well composed. If you are in need of a non 
breaking space, use tilda (~).

Best regards.
