In a comment, the site silently transforms non-breaking space into normal space. I don't like this. This gives bad typography. Like here in my comment : https://stackoverflow.com/a/10055337/1824094

    I think that's by design to avoid abuse of non-breaking spaces. At least I vaguely remember reading that somewhere. Nov 6, 2013 at 11:28
  • In general comments are given only the most limited formatting options to be functional. Nov 6, 2013 at 11:32

  • Comments are supposed to be transitory - if they contain important information they should be rolled into the post they are on. And at that point, they can go away. Trying to put so much effort into a comment is counter productive.

  • @brasofilo and if you abuse it, I'm sure we can update our filter... ;p Nov 6, 2013 at 11:42
  • @MarcGravell, yups, no abuse meant. I'd rather stick . . . . . to dots ;)

  • @Joachim — In this case, it would be nice to transform the abuse without transforming the correct use. Nov 6, 2013 at 12:42
  • brasofilo - Dukeling — I don't get your workarounds. And that's too bad that I cannot put the two "@" here. Nov 6, 2013 at 12:46

    @Oded But it is nice to not have a short piece of code wrap in the middle (and it's not that much effort if you have a program that does it for you). Nov 6, 2013 at 13:02
