Hi All,

This is an EIGHT year old bug that got carried over from Open Office:

Opened: Wed Oct 8 11:23:00 +0000 2003

Basically, Writer does not show/allow spaces at the end of a line on text.  It does not wrap spaces either.

Please fix this!

Many thanks,

Patch to display non printable characters

blank5.patch is implement the display of the the non printable characters till
the end of right margin. 
It works only with left align (the rest aligns was unchanged)

One of the most big benefits of blank5.patch, is possible to edit non printable
character at the end of line (for example inserting new characters).
