Well, there you have it, the non-breaking space. If you place point over
it and type C-x =, you'll see a description of the character. Compare
that with what you get for an ordinary space.

With the non-breaking space, Emacs reads `global-highlight-changes t' as
one token, and that's not a function. If you upgrade to Emacs 22, you'll
get non-breaking spaces highlighted, so that you can better avoid this
error in the future.
