Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Some of the tooltips on the navigation menu on the FAQ page have leading whitespace in them. Also, some of the items don't have tooltips at all.

This is visible both in Chrome 15 and Firefox 6 on Ubuntu 11.04.

too much leading whitespace

same thing here

It is also visible with Safari 5.1 on Mac OS X.

Spinning up an Ubuntu VM and taking a look, looks like the trim behavior is different there for some strange reason. – Nick Craver Aug 29 '11 at 10:34
I see the same on Safari 5.1, and Mac OS X 10.7. It doesn't happen with all the links, but with the ones shown in the screenshot. – kiamlaluno Aug 29 '11 at 12:31

Ok for some reason my local Chrome install doesn't repro this, but Safari does.

In any case, it's just a simple $.trim() call to resolve it, so this will look correct in all browsers next build.
