[Orgmode] Delimiting TeX-fragments

in a software documentation we want to refer to menu entries like this:

[menu][arrow right][menu entry]

no spaces between the text and the arrow.

(usually, we would use a syntax like
"menu:menu entry"
but this is interpreted by org as an internal link?)

We find that:

(1) File\rarrOpen
does not work: \rarr is not recognized

(2) File\rarr Open
leaves a blank space before the "Open"

(3) Datei\rarrÖffnen
works as expected - but only if \rarr is followed by a special character like an Umlaut

This leads to the more general question on how to deliminate a Tex- like fragment without "side effects". It is also important for inserting non-breaking space as

(4) Do\nbsp Not\nbsp Break
will not work because of the additional spaces (is there a better way to insert "nbsp"?).

(5) \alpha\nbsp\beta
does work as expected
