The console fonts run in a tty. I think the appropriate
description might be "what you ask for is what you get".
If you are looking at html in a browser, the browser makes decisions
about how to process the nbsp entity. But for plain text, you get
what the current font produces for that character. The font doesn't
add a linefeed of its own accord - long lines just appear to wrap onto
the next line of the screen.
