I have seen editing help, but I couldn't find how to add a space to the code snippet.
For example, this :
1 2 3
Should look like this (1 space in the last line) :
So, how do I add a line with only spaces in the code?

You can do that using the HTML tags
<pre><code> instead of indentation by 4 spaces:
<pre><code>1 2 3 </code></pre>
1 2 3
Since you're using this for formatting output, you probably don't want syntax highlighting anyway; then you should omit the
</code> tags. (Kinda obvious: don't use 'em if it ain't code.)
Enter a non-breaking space - not the
version, the proper unicode version - after four normal spaces and the result is:
1 2 3
On Windows you enter this with Alt + ( Keypad 0, Keypad 1, Keypad 6, Keypad 0 ).
On Mac OS X you enter this with Alt + Space.
Unfortunately, I don't know how to enter it directly on Linux...
