Show[Graphics[{Hue[.77], Rectangle[{0, 0}, {5,
      1}], Hue[.17], Text[DisplayForm@Cell[BoxData["here is
      some text"], PageWidth -> 50], {4, 1/2}]}]]

Show[Graphics[{Hue[.77],Rectangle[{0,0},{5,1}],Hue[.17],
      Text[DisplayForm@
          Cell[BoxData["here is some text"],"Input",PageWidth\[Rule]50],{4,
          1/2}]}]]

why does the second example fail to include the space?
