Will <nobr> be with us for years to come or should I avoid it in XHTML for fear it may be deprecated in future browsers?

I second that, and can say for sure: no, it is not ok to do so, as there is no such thing in XHTML. You can use several other techniques to reach the same effect (overflow CSS property, replace spaces with &_nbsp;, use style nowrap is not supported in IE if I remember).
