[Therion] Label in North arrow

I want my north arrow to have a label, like "Magnetic north". So I
went looking in the Therion source code and came out with this code,
which is a mix of the defs for northarrow_SKBB and

def s_northarrow_SKBB (expr rot) =
  T:=identity scaled 0.7 rotated -rot;
      interim defaultscale:=1;
      label("Norte_Geografico", (0,-1cm));
  thdraw (-.5cm,-1cm)--(0,1.5cm)--(.5cm,-1cm)--(0,-.5cm)--cycle;
  thfill (-.5cm,-1cm)--(0,1.5cm)--(0,-.5cm)--cycle;

My problem here is with the space between the two words. If I use a
space, I get something like a tilde (~), if I use underscore, I get an
', and so on. What should I use in this code to get a plain space
between the words?
