Hi all

 

 

 

https://www.sciencefocus.com/the-human-body/why-does-santa-have-a-beard-but-mrs-claus-doesnt/

 

 

 

Hopefully the link works, basically i am getting weird little squares amongst the text showing an L above SEP if that makes sense

 

 

 

doesn't effect firefox or IE or edge, but does effect Chrome and Vivaldi

 

just curious as i have never seen this before

 

Cheers

I take it you mean this:

 

 

Yep I do :)

 

Source code shows it as a unicode character \u2028 which Google tells me is "line separator"

 

Edit: I see the same in Edge. IE seems to have a line break in the code here whereas Edge and Crome do not.

Safari acts as if the character isn't there.

Looks like after 3 years of waiting it got assigned to someone in August, so give it a year or two :-)

It also got assigned in Nov 2015, only to be unassigned again in Jan 2017. Better not hold your breath!
