*Safer* to have no space there at all, and for Belarusian, too.

The rules of hair splitting :)) require the narrow space before the units, indeed, but I don't think there are actually many fonts around containing the *narrow* U+202F (e.g., Times New Roman has regular width blank there).

Anyway, programs neither help with entering the glyph, nor highlight its non-breakability.

LibreOffice comes to mind :))


P.S. Quite the same as it's with abbreviations of names and patronymics, which require narrow non-breaking spaces 'by the book' -- 'A._A. Ivanov', but for the actual use on computer are sub-standardised to be used with no space -- 'A.A. Ivanov'

Revert it for ru (Russian), please.
We do not use space between number and "%". It may be an half space
but not nbsp.

I can replace it with a U+202F NARROW NO-BREAK SPACE, or would Russian
speakers prefer no space at all like it was before?
