It would be good to have a test that would assert what happens if the text input included markup, eg:

assert_equal "this &lt;b&gt;&nbsp;&lt;/b&gt; that", nbsp_between_last_two_words("this <b>and</b> that")

I think there's a escaping bug and the <b> will be marked as safe. Even if it isn't a bug, it would be good for the test to cover that case if the implementation changed, and to self-document. It's reasonable to expect a description to include & or < and for those not to break rendering.
