5/5 - (2 votes)

A thin space (U+2009), as the name suggests, is a type of whitespace, or space character, that is typically one-fifth (1⁄5) or one-sixth (1⁄6) of an em. This is narrower than a regular space.

Thin spaces are particularly useful when trying to fit words into tight spaces or when aiming to improve the aesthetics of a layout.
