Space is a graphic character. Unlike escape, Space possesses visual representation. It can be easily noticed visually as it represents absence of any graphic symbol. It makes the active position to be moved forward by one character position. In some applications, Space can be determines as the lowest-level "word separator", which has to be used with the adjoining separator characters.
In writing, a space ( ) is represented by an empty are. It implements the function of dividing words, sentences, syllables (in syllabification) and other written or printed glyphs (characters). There are different conventions for spacing among languages, however, in some languages the spacing rules are complex.
Different length spaces are used in typesetting for achieving some special goals. However, one should remember that a typewriter can accommodate strictly a limited number of keys. Most typewriters have only one space width, which can be achieved by pressing the space bar. The professional typography was influenced by different spacing and typewriter conventions, that were created in the result of widespread acceptance of the typewriter. These conventions were based on the typewriter's mechanical limitations, and make the designers` work that create some printed stuff easier and more pleasant.
Computer representation of text doesn't have any of mechanical and physical limitations in rather modern character encoding environment (like Unicode). There spaces of different widths, styles, or language characteristics (different space characters) are specified with special code points. Whitespace characters include spaces of different width, including all those that professional typesetters use.
