Perhaps, you missed something.  It was your opinion about
unsuitability of a modified background that I've taken into account
before I started to think about a different solution.  I fully
agree with you that a modified background is a bad solution.
That's why I installed for people to try a completely different
patch which I think is much better than anything proposed so far.
A new solution puts the underline attribute on non-breaking spaces.
This appropriately reflects the purpose of non-breaking spaces
("gluing" words together) and is not as annoying as anything else.
