unfortunately there is no function for it. Craig R. have tested some font 
metrics via Python but with very small luck (=no luck imho;))

I use small workaround - set forced formating on the text frame. Text is 
formated then:
this that                      something
there is unbreakable space between 'this' and 'that'.

This is the way I'm using in table of contents generator hack for 1.2x series
