Have we reached out to Google and Safari about this? I heard that Google has someone working on WP issues.

Excellent suggestions. Diannaa has the most experience and thus would likely be best positions to give estimates on the data.

Does not happen with firefox it appears. It does however appear to take the liberty of adding a capital letters to all the terms that are linked.

In these two edits I was able to add 34 hard spaces. This was with windows 10 using the most recent version of google chrome.

I have started a request for an edit filter to potentially block these edits by VE until VE is fixed. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Edit_filter/Requested#Copying_and_pasting_with_WP:VE_adding_hundreds_of_hidden_non-breaking_spaces

Okay I have just verified that it is a problem with VE. VE is adding these non breaking spaces per here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical)#Non_breaking_spaces

Thanks Pine. Yes it is not really related to WikEd. WikEd just reveals a problem created by something else. I suspect it is VE. What should it be renamed as you think?

Yup agree with Betacommand. The big question is why did 450 non-visible no-breaking spaces get added in this edit? https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Septic_arthritis&type=revision&diff=816686853&oldid=812190379

Why can we not simple replace hidden no-breaking spaces with normal space with WikEd?

Okay so an edit filter to block hidden no-breaking spaces? It could also come from a copy and paste issue involving visual editor. I am not really sure of the cause. Students often use VE work in their sandbox and than copy stuff into main space.
