Hi JLuc,

I think what Martin was proposing was a way to tweak the width of the non-breaking thin space glyph. I looked that there are no Scripter commands that will do that - you can tweak the horizontal width of a block of text, but I don't think an individual character would fit the syntax.
You could of course edit a font with FontForge, but that only changes the character on your own computer.
