Suggestion #1:  How about a WikiStyle?  Add the following to your config.php:

    $WikiStyleTags['white-space'] = 
        array('style' => 'white-space:$value; ');
    $WikiStyle['nowrap']['white-space'] = 'nowrap';

Then you can do %nowrap%This text is not to be broken for line wrapping.%%

I've now added this in the cookbook at 
http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/NoWrap .
