    space chars that show only to your eyes looking at browser window. looks pretty
    weird:

    ... 58 pc. melmac/melamine brookpark white & aqua dishes james bond
    collection ..... wide color plotter printer petking cat play cave with pom pom, cat
    toy, ...
    kl.gisku.cn/lxapmc.html - 813k -

    ....... golf shirt mercerized mens 3x 3xl petking cat play cave with pom pom, ...
    kwj.esjsl.cn/gccaf.html - 748k -

    weirder is that when i paste as text, the blank spaces disappear (as seen above)

    view source also shows the space chars, but again, when when i paste as text, the
    blank spaces disappear :
    <span class="a">yuc.vgcjw.cn/bqbuvwg.html - 753k - </span>

    above is current firefox 2.0.0.6


    in ie6, browser page shows spacechars, but view source (notepad) drops the
    space chars

    A. There is no space there.
    What you think is two characters, a period followed by a space,
    is actually only _one_ character 'FULLWIDTH FULL STOP' (Unicode value U+FF0E).
    Try selecting it character by character, you will see there is only one character.

    D. Is that using Notepad with a proportional font or a monospaced font?
