This is a follow-up to #51042.

Hope this is the correct place to report this. Regarding 50142, I have several customer sites (at least 50) in which we type a space in the Excerpt field in order for an Excerpt not to display. It displays the space, which is invisible. But with your change above, WordPress 5.5.1 is ignoring the typed space and displaying the excerpts, which we do not want. I'm going to have about 50 customers ask me how to fix this over the next few weeks when they start to notice the issue. If I type the code for a non-breaking space, the issue goes away but they'd have to manually adjust this on all posts. Can this be adjusted so that WordPress still recognizes a typed space as a single character excerpt? Thank you. I also posted on the WordPress forum at
