Lol. Excel has gotten a coworker of mine with this too. He emailed the offending code to me and and I couldn't find an issue... because the email program converted it to a normal space during copy/paste.

Yeah that's the scairy thing about it that it can disappear! :D I found it in Excel in a date field that would not get converted when importing the Excel into a custom PHP app. The date's format looked right.. but on both left and right side it had this strange char.. who knows when it got there!
