Description Graf.Zahl 2007-07-29 17:47:58 UTC
To demonstrate the bug:

1. Open a page in the page namespace for which a page image exists (for example the URL given).

2. Enter something like  

3. Press "Show preview" repeatedly.

4. The string   will slowly be destroyed until only an ordinary space (not a non-breaking space) remains.

In real life, what typically happens is that a non-breaking space is converted to an ordinary space. This is very annoying. It does not happen on pages outside the page namespace.

it might be due to the regexp matching in proofread.js
