Use a plain text buffer to get rid of fontification or switch that off (launch 
GNU Emacs with -Q)! You can also switch to a font that has U+00A0 defined or 
create a fontset in which this character is defined as coming from a font with 

I get, for example, in X11:

                     position: 206 of 6832 (3%), column: 0
                    character:   (displayed as  ) (codepoint 160, #o240, #xa0)
            preferred charset: iso-8859-1 (Latin-1 (ISO/IEC 8859-1))
        code point in charset: 0xA0
                       syntax: .        which means: punctuation
                     category: .:Base, b:Arabic, j:Japanese, l:Latin
                  buffer code: #xC2 #xA0
                    file code: #xA0 (encoded by coding system iso-latin-1-unix)
                      display: by this font (glyph code)
            xft:-b&h-Lucida Sans 
Typewriter-normal-normal-normal-*-10-*-*-*-m-0-iso10646-1 (#xAC)
               hardcoded face: nobreak-space
        Character code properties: customize what to show
          name: NO-BREAK SPACE
          old-name: NON-BREAKING SPACE
          general-category: Zs (Separator, Space)
          decomposition: (noBreak 32) (noBreak ' ')
        There are text properties here:
          charset              iso-8859-1
