Safari, Terminal, and nbsp
Authored by: brettmjohnson on Feb 23, '04 09:16:03PM

One problem I have been suffering with is how Safari treats nonbreaking space & nbsp ; when copying plain text to the clipboard (or dragging). The character is converted to some non-ASCII space character. Although TextEdit can handle it, pasting into results in crap.

This is annoying to me because I can no longer copy and paste code examples from Experts Exchange ( without an annoying replace-all step in TextEdit.

TextEdit's default format is RTF... so before you copy and paste to the terminal just press Shift-Command-T to change it to plain text (or use the menu command under Format).
