How do I put a space character before option text in a HTML select element?

Isn’t &#160 the entity for space?

<option>&#160;option 1</option>
<option>    option 2</option>

Works for me…


Just checked this out, there may be compatibility issues with this in older browsers, but all seems to work fine for me here. Just thought I should let you know as you may want to replace with &nbsp;
