Special string used for test case description not show up


#1

when we add test case description, if the description has url and the url end with non-breaking space, then you can edit the description, while when view it, nothing is showed out.
for the fake " ", if print out by charactor number, it is 160, while blank space is 32
this is the string we used.

Hi Steven,

In your example there is only one space between the url and “page”. A non-breaking space is not needed here. As for the URL not displaying when saved, this is an odd behavior but if a nonbreaking space is not used, does the URL appear as intended?

yes, if use a regular blank space, it works. This only happens when url end with a non-breaking space.
