I've thought about it just three weeks (and use unbreakable space after 
monosyllable preposition too- czech typo rule). I'm planning to write some
plugin for this issue to automatize manual work with charmap.
There (in Czech) are some (sometimes) easy to recognize rules to use en - em
etc. How it's handled in other typos? Or is there any Scribus function
to do it without new features?
