html / emacs / email / gnus: 0xa0 classified as "whitespace" but not treated as whitespace

Gnus/5.09 (Gnus v5.9.0) Emacs/21.3
Correction, 0xa0 should actually be treated as whitespace but is not.
I.e. fill-paragraph and friends don't treat it as whitespace:
Here is what describe-char-after says:
character: (04240, 2208, 0x8a0)
charset: latin-iso8859-1 (Right-Hand Part of Latin Alphabet 1 (ISO/IEC
code point: 32
category: :This character counts as a space for indentation purposes.
buffer code: 0x81 0xA0
file code: not encodable by coding system nil
I use the following routine to fix them up:
(defun 0xa0-clean () (interactive)
(query-replace-regexp "\240" " "))
Any hint as to where the problem might be? I suspect it's a simple fix.
