I wouldn't want those 2 extra spaces to inconvenience anyone by making them feel unbalanced, or prematurely wear out their monitor by using up extra pixel-fluid, so it will be fixed next build.

here's another minor annoyance: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/106062/… –  staticx Sep 13 '11 at 13:39
I've seen a few examples of this before as well. It might be worth doing a grep for extra whitespace in title attributes across the board, just to check for additional opportunities to preserve that pixel-fluid. –  hammar Sep 13 '11 at 13:45
@hammar if only life were that simple; we don't add extra white-space for fun! This was actually due to optional data that is not shown in all scenarios –  Marc Gravell Sep 13 '11 at 13:47

@Marc, to be fair, it only remove spaces at the beginning and the end of the string. (I can't believe I'm doing this.) See: msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/t97s7bs3.aspx ;) –  Loïc Wolff Sep 14 '11 at 7:22
