April 29, 2010 by Kim

What is nbsp, and why is it so prominent at our website? Add your thoughts in the comments.

HTML (which is the language that browsers read in) has a special letter called   This is the same thing as a space, but the line of text will never be word-wrapped on this space. In other words, if I have two words separated by a   instead of a space, those two words will never be put on different lines. They will behave as if they were one word.

    The mystery is what kind of web-building tools Red Rock is using that makes such frequent use of these characters, and why this cloud machine doesn’t ignore them.

    Alright, so it seems like ‘ ‘ is rendered as a space even when I type it out in text, so I will write exactly what this character looks like, but I will put spaces in between each letter:

    & n b s p ;

    (So in my previous comment, whenever I typed that, it just looks like a long space. I hope it makes more sense now.)
