I just discovered this "trick" today!  use "Invisible Space".  the 
shortcut is "Esc is Esc".  I have a similar problem that Greek fonts 
will not print on the same line next to regular fonts in plot labels.  
If I put an invisible space in between them, the problem goes away.  
Maybe this would work on your problem as well.
