[resolved] What is the code: ``& # 0160 ;` ` (5 posts)

    A lot of the posts that I imported from Typepad have this code after almost every sentence. Wow! The code will not show up even though I have it enclosed in back ticks. I think the code may just be making a space.

    So here is the code taken apart by putting a space between each component and still enclosed in back ticks. & # 0160 ; 

    This is more curiosity than that it seems to be causing a problem. It is odd because some of the posts have it the whole way through and others do not.

    Only backticks in the post section work, not the title. It's also discouraged to enter code within the title. The title should describe succinctly the thread, not specify code.

    Thanks Andrew. However, as you saw there was no code in the body of the text either! Try putting the following in your post and see what happens if you remove all the spaces and use the backticks. I can tell you will be surprised.

    backtick & # 0160 ; backtick

    Is the issue within the WordPress.org forum environment, or your own website? If your own website, may you link the problematic webpage?

    Andrew, this is really weird! I went back to the two posts where I was seeing this and now they are not showing it! I had done a couple of edits and resaved it (multiple times because of multiple edits) and "Poof!" that code that was at the end of each sentence is now gone. These posts are ones that I imported this past summer but I am just now making time to go back and clean them all up.

    Thank you so much for your attempt to help!

    I think the code must just mean a space or a double space at the end of a sentence. I am old-fashion and think the double space at the end of a sentence makes a paragraph easier to read. Plus I have been typing that way for years and years and the double space is a hard habit to break.
