I've been seeing this problem a lot lately.

In this answer, I am unable to get the second code block to indent. However, the markdown is identical to the first - what is wrong?

EDIT:

Pasting the content into this post causes the same issue:

    Red: #ff0000     Black: #000000

Result == Red `xnor` Black
       == Red ^ ~Black
       == #ff0000 ^ #ffffff
       == #00ffff
       == Cyan

View the source and you'll see everything looks OK.

You seem to have some no break spaces ( ) there. When I delete them and reinsert regular spaces:

Red:   #ff0000
Black: #000000

Result == Red `xnor` Black
       == Red ^ ~Black
       == #ff0000 ^ #ffffff
       == #00ffff
       == Cyan

Whatever editor you are using is inserting no break spaces that confuse the parser.

I am seeing characters #160 (no break space) and #32 (space) instead of just regular spaces.

@Eric - Using what? Whatever it is adds a character #160 to the space. –  Oded Jan 15 '13 at 20:12
    
A combination of copy and paste from other parts of my answer and the markdown buttons to indent things for me. Perhaps it's a chrome extension screwing with me. More investigation by me required, I guess –  Eric Jan 15 '13 at 20:16
