Missing Spaces When Viewed

 12:38 pm on Jul 13, 2009 (gmt 0)

Running text ads, I get a complaint when the ad is not correct. Recently I have had several advertisers complain when there was a space missing when viewed, yet the space is there. Consistently this is the code:

<strong> window coverings</strong> for

The space between the coverings and for is not visible on her browser, and is on FF3.5 and IE8 on my machine.

Suggestions as to the problem and solution. I just added an additional space just before </strong> to see if that corrects the problem.

Doc Type is:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

Her computer is a PC with IE7. Adding the additional space before the </strong> fixed the problem.

Try using
&nbsp; instead of a space.

I'll have to have a play with that at home. We have IE6 in the office and I can't replicate the problem here.

I would guess that the real culprit is starting the STRONG tag with a space. I would always start and finish a tag flush with the character string.
