I noticed this when copying an email into a bug report, it took me a while to figure out why the wiki formatting for the hash sign was not being applied. Apparently some mail clients really like non-breaking spaces.

I would suggest translating all such chr(202) into normal spaces chr(32) at a high level.

If tabs are also an issue (checking with this), maybe there is just a regex somewhere that needs to be updated.

  1. Regular hash-wiki
    ## Hash followed by non-breaking space
    1. Hash followed by a tab character


#1 Updated by Jonathan Cormier about 1 year ago

Just ran into this same issue, copying from an email that contained a non breaking space right before the #.
