Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

Hello,

Many emails are now using 0xa0 as a newline character (at least as
rendered by w3 under gnus and as sent by messages using "R" for Reply).
Often the normal newline 0x0a occurs above and below the 0xa0 line.

E.g. some text.
0x0a
0xa0
0x0a
Some other text.

These strange line separators break C-x C-o (delete-black-lines), C-q
(fill-paragraph), as well as all other whitespace-related functionality.

What is the solution?
Should w3 render 0xa0 as 0x0a?
Should 0xa0 be treated as [[:space:]]???  (dangerous?)
Or is their some other solution?

It's difficult to "fix" (i.e. compensate for) infinite broken emailers.

Thanks!
