Does anyone know what these numbers mean: \u0026 np; ( 17,669,499,335 ) ( 59,217,211 )

 

These and others like them are on some Aliexpress auctions for shower curtain rails but I have no idea what they are supposed to indicate. I need to get some dimensions but I don't know if these relate to that. Any clarification would be much appreciated.

Click on the full item description link to see the strings referred to.

 

Its nothing meaningful - just a bad cut and paste that someone has stuffed up.

 

Just google \u0026

Ok, thanks for that. They seem to do this a lot.

That is because that seller is just loading descriptions and images that they have bought or got from someone else. Generally they will list things with the exact same photo as others, and 90% of the desctiption is just crap about how they ship things etc.

\u0026 is Unicode for ampersand &.

 

 

 

Someone has cut-n-pasted from some other document without converting. Maybe the other numbers are representations for Chinese characters?
