Inserting whitespace in an app's nav menu?

Motivator

I want to have some whitespace between some of my menu items in the nav of my app. I would like something along the lines of this:

Menu1   Menu2   Menu3                 Menu4

In my nav definition XML I have tried using a <divider /> between my </collection> <collection>, but this only adds another menu titled "------" to the nav. Using &nbsp; makes Splunk complain about invalid XML.

How can I accomplish this?

You should probably use CSS for this rather than XML.

I agree -- may yet switch to that.

I found this link - does it help?

http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/xmlgraphics-fop-users/200406.mbox/%3C40C5E61C.9040304@hotma...

From that link:

Line Feed           &#xA;
Carriage Return     &#xD;
space character     &#x20;
Non-breaking space  &#xA0;

Using &#xA0; in front of the menu name (Menu4 in my example) works very well. Thanks!
