Which screen readers? Which "garbage codes"? What "format"? The entity
reference is just a notation that denotes the no-break space
character " ". If your screen reader doesn't grok it, then it needs to be
fixed. The no-break space character has been used on web pages since the
early days, and if your software chokes on it, it might well choke on "!" as
well. Should we therefore stop using exclamation marks?
