This happens afaik only in IE and 'white-space: nowrap' doesn't help (simply
because it's not a whitespace :-). So it's not worth the effort.
I'm fine with removing <nobr>, *shrug* it's HTML. It's not expected to be
displayed exactly everwhere. Just imagine a text browser that breaks at 80
chars per line...

Side note: Ilia, please do not add extra information into the translation at
all (except <transnote>s, of course). The way to add things is always English
original -> translation/transformation/whatever (or should be, however).
