I found a weird behaviour regarding no break spaces.

If you are in text mode and add


and swap to visual mode and back to text mode. the nbsp; stays visible as code

but if you add


swap to visual mode and back the nbsp is converted to a hidden nbsp space. Only visual in the html editor in f.e. firebug in the front of the website.

You can not see those no break tags in the editor any more, but they are still there causing effects on how the text looks in the front of the website.

Those nbsp codes should not convert to hidden nbsp codes in the text editor. People are not aware of them if they cant see them.


please fix.
