When some text is popped up that includes key bindings, the
'help-key-binding' face is not applied to all the characters of a key
sequence.  Simple keys, like 'C-g', and sequences like 'C-x o', are
shown in that face in their entirety, but key sequences with a prefix
argument, like 'C-u C-x =', don't have the face applied to the space
between "C-u" and "C-x =".  This looks ugly.
