Hard Spaces (non-breaking spaces) in Microsoft Word

There is such a thing as a "hard space" which is a separater between words like a normal space but it stops the words from being separated across lines e.g. words with a hard space between them will be kept together on the line.   They are also known as "non-breaking spaces".  Handy things at times but how do you "input" them using the keyboard?
 
Its not quite intuitive but Ctrl-Shift-Spacebar will do it.
 
You can also do it thru the menu bar by choosing Insert|Symbol|Special Characters.
