# More than one space character between words

Is it not possible to write more than one space between two words?
Sometimes I need to type more than one space to make my statements look more distinct. However, it automatically turns out to one space anyway.

You           can         use HTML entity &nbsp; for this purpose. Since it means non-breaking space, it is advisable to separate the instances of &nbsp; by ordinary spaces, allowing for a line break.
That said, such formatting should be avoided in all but rare cases. Over-formatting posts rarely benefits them. For example, the line break <br> that you used in this question is not necessary and looks unnatural: it should be either a paragraph break (created with a blank line) or no break at all. There's little reason for using line breaks outside of writing poetry.
