How did they do that?
Is that right or wrong?
Is there something with the PHP, HTML, whatever they used to build the web page?
Could it be an XML or database issue?
If you copy it into notepad and try to save it it warns you that unicode is present.
Well, I am on a Mac and I save things in TextEdit as Unicode (UTF-8) by default.
I don't see that error. (Maybe you are on Windows?)
I saved two copies of this code; one in its unicode format and another in ANSI format. I then examined the hex dump of each copy and found that the unicode version has character 00 between each of the alpha characters.
Those are pretty cool screen shots you've attached!
How in the world did you do that?!
You must be really smart...
When the same text is saved in ANSI format the 00 characters disappear, except around the commas.
I have attached the hex dump for each version for you to have a look at (check1.jpg=unicode; check2.jpg=ANSI).
I tried saving a TextEdit file - with the text - as both "Western (Windows Latin 1)" and "Western (ASCII)", but OS X won't let me do that for some reason? :-/
(I want to stress again, that this is the ONLY website I have ever had issues copying and pasting text from a web page into a text file. Furthermore, the text in said text files has never lost any formatting.)
The quickest way I can see of altering the spacing is doing a global search and replace for a >space comma< combination and replacing it with
That's too much work, and the text is getting screwed up in a non-standard way so that it really requires going over every sentence.
I'm trying to trouble-shoot this so I can contact the webmaster and tell them how to fix their dumb website! :mad:
