Jon Tan / silo / typography / Typographic Spaces Test Suite

This is a series of examples of different types of typographic spaces using the core web fonts for user agent and operating system comparison. Not all fonts have the array of spaces tested. User agents or operating systems may substitute the character if it is not available in a specified font.
