It's a non-breaking space cause by using the spacebar. Some people use it
to attempt layout on a page, but it is not a good thing to do.

Just to clarify, it's actually   (with the semicolon).

You get it if you hit the space bar more than once, since by default
HTML ignores any "white space" other than a single space between
characters. FrontPage recognizes this and replaces the second and
subsequent spaces with   which is a non-breaking space character
that will be recognized by the browser.

Using the space bar to position things on screen is a BAD idea, as Tom
Willet said, since browsers will interpret the width of the space to be
inserted differently. Occasional use of   such as to put two
spaces between sentences, which is a common typographical habit of many
people, is probably OK.
