After I pasted the above, when I step through the last line using arrow keys, it's clear that there is an extra character between the 3 and the " (I don't know if this mystery character will survive the posting process though)
However, when I print out each charCodeAt, I find the mystery character at position 0, and its code is 8203
Where does this come from?
I just updated to the latest version of EdgeAnimate (2015.0). In the previous version I was using .html() instead of .text(), but had to switch due to changes in the latest version. (Why the extra p tag Adobe?)
