Many thanks for pointing out \[VeryThinSpace] and \[InvisibleSpace].
They will save me lots of time in typesetting delta-x's and such things
within Text cells, where I want the 2nd character to be typeset italic.
Until now, I had to do the painfully slow step of stopping the flow (or
coming back later), highlighting the x, and explicitly making it italic.
