One of our staff here, Ed Sabol, has caught an apparent inconsistency
in the VOTable document and schema. The document recommends
using elements for embedded spaces (in the discussion
of character primitives in section 6), but the schema
does not define it, and nbsp is not a standard XML escape sequence.
Probably the simplest thing to do is to simply delete the
reference in the document. The numeric alternative
is   is fine. Alternatively the next version
of the Schema could define nbsp.
