A normed space embedding question

Does any normed space X can be embedded into another normed space Y, such that X is density in the Y and dim(Y)=dim(X)+1.

What does $\dim Y=\dim X+1$ mean if $X$ (and $Y$) is infinitely dimensional? –  Davide Giraudo Oct 9 '12 at 11:39
Perhaps it is better write codimension(Y)=1 ? –  Tomás Oct 9 '12 at 12:00
Yes, codim(Y)=1! –  Strongart Oct 12 '12 at 5:47

Well, the answer is no, the usual $\mathbb R^n$ is not going to be dense in $\mathbb R^{n+1}$ (every norm on finite dimension determines the same topology).
Take any proper dense subspace $Y$ of an infinite dimension normed space (I bet, such always exists, but for example $X:=L_1[0,1]$ and $Y:=C[0,1]$ with the $L_1$-norm), and extend algebraically its basis -using axiom of choice- to a basis of $X$ and leave one basis vector.
That $\,\Bbb R^n\,$ is not going to be dense in $\,\Bbb R^{n+1}\,$ does not prove yet that what the OP asked cannot be attained. –  DonAntonio Oct 9 '12 at 12:03
