The french keyboard maps don't feature a shortcut for the narrow no-break space which must normally be used extensively in the french language.

Here are some examples of sentences using it:
• Voici la liste des choses que je voudrais que tu m'amènes : un parapluie, un pot de fleur et un chapeau.
• Combien de bugs as-tu reporté à Apple ?
• J'ai hâte d'être à demain quand Apple aura répondu à mon bug !

I personally created a custom keyboard map so I have access to the character easily with ⌥ + ⇧ + Space. I was inspired by the availability of the simple no-break space with ⌥ + Space.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch any software with text input
2. Try to enter a narrow no-break space with a shortcut
3. Get depressed
4. Hope Apple will add a shortcut someday 😉

Expected Results:
We should be able to add narrow no-break spaces easily through the usage of a simple shortcut (such as ⌥ + ⇧ + Space) like it is for no-break space (using ⌥ + Space)

Actual Results:
We don't have access to a shortcut for narrow no-break spaces.
