Non-Breaking Space in Word

Ever have a phrase in Word that you do not want split onto another line? Like March 31 should stay together and not have a line ending with March and the new line starting with 31. Or Mr Evans with the Mr on the first line and Evans on the second. And Chapter 3 should be all on the same line. You get the idea.

It is very simple, but unknown by most Word users. Instead of hitting the space bar at the end of the first item, press Ctrl+Shift+Space bar. You will not see anything different unless you turn on the Show-Hide button. But if you insert some extra words to the left of the phrase, the whole phrase will move to the next line.
