Where did my Text Area extra spaces go?


#1

Hi [I]groov [/I]Fans,

When formatting your text in a Text Area gadget, you’ll find some handy info here in the help:


But have you tried to put a few extra spaces in there and had them not actually show up?

Don’t forget your ASCII Extended characters, like those listed here:

Especially popular: Alt+248 gets you the ° degrees symbol.

Or, in this case, try: Alt+255 as another way of producing a special space: one that won’t get “reduced” by your browser.

That’s how I got this spaced the way I wanted it:

Hope that helps!

Related: in OptoScript, if you want to have an invisible space (vs. the “—” you get for an empty string), you can use code like this:

sEmptyLooking = chr( 0x7F );
