Usage notes[edit]

  • (emphasis): / /, * *, _ _

Symbol[edit]

] [

  1. On old typesetter technology, space advances the typing position by a width of about one character. Pressing a spacebar creates a white space analogous to the word divider used as punctuation. Still used in some electronics as a control character in this sense. Contrast with backspace.
  2. On modern text renderers, space is used to add a whitespace between other characters. The width varies among different fonts and renderers. Most renderers introduce line breaks at this space when a line of text reaches the end of the available display width.
    See header section for the character.
    (Can we add an example for this sense?)
  3.   is an alternative to the usual space. The no-break space should be entered to prevent a line of text to be broken up into two lines at its position, such as in the middle of a quantity and its units of measurement.
    Use a no-break space at the space(s) in the middle of a quantity, so that a line break does not occur in the middle of a quantity, such as in 60 km / hr.

English[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From the vaporwave subculture which uses full-width lettering to write words. This style produces what appears to be spaces between each letter, leading to vaporwave-related terms being spelled with spaces between each letter to replicate this style (for example, the spacing in "vaporwave", in full-width, is replicated using spaces as "v a p o r w a v e").[1]
