You should check this thread out too. Same problem: Anyone know why Edge might be generating a hidden character in HTML text?
It seems that the newest version of EA (2015) uses a zero-width-space to help break lines of text. If the charset of the website where your EA-content is imbedded has a different setting (EA is UTF-8 by default), some browsers won't be able to show the zero-width-space, and instead shows some strange character. I get the problem in Internet Explorer, but not in Firefox. The problem is similar to what I describe in this thread regarding special characters. My solution for this is using notepad++ to open the .js-file and exchange every special character with it's equivalent HTML entity code....problem now is, that the zero-width-space won't show up in the .js-file (because it has no width ).
If you wan't to see where the zero-width-space gets inserted, open your html-file in Chrome and use the developer tools to locate the HTML entity code for zero-width-space (​). Use Chrome because the code won't show in other browsers' dev tools.
The short term solution is to use a previous version of Edge Animate (2014.0.1 might be the least buggy version). Now, in this previous version, you won't get the text-editing tools of the 2015-version (that causes the zero-width-space problem), but you can still format your text by using .html("<b>your text here</b>) on your textfields.
do you've already an acceptable solution for this problem?
I've the same one :-/
utf-8 is w3c standard for many years. Problem is with page.
