¿Possible to place paragraph 'rule' under trailing blank spaces?

Is it possible to place paragraph 'rule' under trailing blank spaces? 


FYI, I am writing equations using tables, and use a horizontally-split cell to hold numerator (top) and denominator (bottom). If the numberator has fewer characters than the denominator, the division bar (in my case, the 'rule') is too narrow.  I would like to add spaces before and after the numberator to make the rule match with the denominator, which gives the equation a nice look. Blank spaces before the numberator text carry a rule, but blank spaces AFTER the numberator text do not—neither hard spaces, nor em-spaces, nor en-space, nor any other I can find. (Using the bottom cell stroke as the division line doesn't work for my project.)  Thanks in advance.

    You should be able to underline a space, but why not use a real rule below? You can set that to column width with any indents you want, regardless of the characters in the line.

    you could use any character (besides space) and give it a fill of none

    ... as long as the underline/rule is not [text color]
