Now here's a twist...

For me, both the Delete key and the Backspace key does exactly the same
thing--deselects the space, leaving the cursor between the last
character of the word and ... The still-present space.

And, since I love to tinker, if you put TWO spaces at the end of a
paragraph, and select both spaces, then pressing either the Delete key
or the Backspace key deletes ONE space, and leaves the cursor between
the last character of the word and the single remaining space.
