  Expansion: Thin space (U+2006) and narrow no-break space (U+202F)

Status in Ubuntu Font Family:
Status in fonts-ubuntu package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  By typographic convention, a thin spaced is used in some special
  cases, for instance, as a thousands separator, or, in French, as a
  guillemets separator, or, in German, in abbreviated phrases such as
  «z. B.». Since the Ubuntu font does not feature a thin space,
  applications will use replacement thin spaces from other fonts. In the
  worst of cases, these replacements are no thinner than Ubuntu's
  regular space.

  Proposed solution: Assign U+2006 THIN SPACE and U+202F NARROW NO-BREAK
  SPACE to a glyph that has half the width of the regular space
  character (U+0020). Probably not in Ubuntu Mono.
