I'm kind of confused. I went to the edit field to test this and, sure enough, there were four spaces. So I deleted the spaces and added four more...now it works. – ಠ_ಠ Aug 7 '13 at 16:58

No copy/paste at all! – amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Aug 7 '13 at 17:02
@amanaPlanaCAnalPAnaMA - That example also starts with char 160. – Oded Aug 7 '13 at 17:02
Very odd... I cannot replicate it again... – amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Aug 7 '13 at 17:03
Maybe a Ctrl/Alt/Other modifier key stuck a bit? – Mat Aug 7 '13 at 17:04
Idk... I do not think so.... – amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Aug 7 '13 at 17:18
