Ok, I give up. I've done some research, and other than determining
that a thin space is "the thinnest space that normally separates
words", what is it and what's it for?

(NB: I do NOT have a background in typography, and until I started
using Frame I'd never heard of thin spaces. After I started using
Frame I'd heard of them, but ignored them completely.)

Of course I'm willing to take 'No' for an answer, so long as 'No' was the answer I was looking for.
