I just recently posted something and when I looked at it, I noticed that between each sentence was ":nbsp;".

Does anyone else get that?  What is it?  How do you get rid of it?

It's HTML code for a non-breaking space, but not predefined in XML (  is generally used in stead). I see what you mean when I view the post in IE, but comes out fine when I view it with Lynx best guess is that it has to do with the interpretation of xml code by your browser, but I can't know for certain as I don't have the source code.

I believe the nbsp is supposed to have an ampersand (&) at the beginning instead of a colon (:).  But GiC hit it right on the nose...
