The thread on serif.com discusses formatting of poetry in a Kindle book. The problem is that the author would like to indent two lines.
You don't want to do that by using a character that "looks like a space" yet isn't seen by the software to be a space. This would break features like dictionary lookup on the first word on each of those lines. The actual solution is to style the text as indented. There are some guidelines on the KDP site.
One way to achieve the desired goal is to use the 'margin' and 'text-align' CSS styles.

Internationalization is not a feature.
It is an architecture.
