In HTML it's represented by  

In Unicode it's code point U+00A0

In UTF-8 it's encoded as 0xc2 0xa0

On my system, with Debian's X Compose defaults, I can type one by
pressing Compose-Space-Space.  Here's the relevant snippet from

# Spaces
<Multi_key> <space> <space>             : " "   nobreakspace # NO-BREAK SPACE

It's one of the first things I look for whenever something is visually
screwy (along with Carriage Returns).  They commonly creep in when someone
pastes content from a Microsoft product, or from a web site (or both).

On Debian, you can use hd (which is the same as hexdump -C).  Or od -tx1.
