This will work fine if you want to change the _letter_ spacing of an
*entire* paragraph, but I understood that the original poster was trying
to change the _word_ spacing of a single line. Certainly this technique
is a useful one to know about, but I don't think it applies to the
original problem. Your best bet in that situation is still fixed-width
spaces and/or turning off smart spaces.
