  • EN QUAD – ' '
  • EM QUAD – ' ' – mutton quad

  • THIN SPACE – ' ' – a fifth of an em (or sometimes a sixth)
  • HAIR SPACE – ' ' – thinner than a thin space; in traditional typography, the thinnest space available
  • ZERO WIDTH SPACE – '' – commonly abbreviated ZWSP; this character is intended for invisible word separation and for line break control; it has no width, but its presence between two characters does not prevent increased letter spacing in justification
  • NARROW NO-BREAK SPACE – ' ' – commonly abbreviated NNBSP; a narrow form of a no-break space, typically the width of a thin space or a mid space
  • MEDIUM MATHEMATICAL SPACE – ' ' – abbreviated MMSP; four-eighteenths of an em

  • TAG SPACE – '󠀠'
