You forgot ·
Always more a fan of •.
That's what I used to do as well when starting with web development... I was typing every single character by hand though, because I didn't know shortcuts, not even copy&paste.
Non-breaking doesn't necessarily mean non-collapsing. Though most renderers will not collapse those, I do believe it'd be okay by unicode.
Meanwhile, & is for ampersand, a.k.a. &
Furthermore, a.k.a; is for "Also Known As"... i.e. another name.
A bit furthermore, i.e. stands for id est and means roughly "that is".
The way I remember the difference between i.e. and e.g. is that, people think i.e. means "in/for example" but actually that's e.g. -- i.e. is "specifically"
Just never, never, never say "ect.". Makes me twitch every time I see it in print. Even worse when I see someone I know is an experienced UNIX/Linux user make that botch.
@GeorgeJempty I always thought of "i.e." as "in essence"
Additionalmost, i.e. is for "id est", a Latin browser most people try to forget.
And & is short for et c.
I've got a "smart aleck of the day" award around here somewhere for you...... :P
What do I get for "anti-virgule"?
I always thought that i.e. was In Example, and e.g. Example Given...
Actually, e.g. stands for exempli gratia in Latin, which means "for the sake of example".
Is that a pointer in this notation?
and & is for &
which actually sometimes happens in some conversion processes and you end up having literal & when you expect an &...
I love that it's non-breaking. It's a super power. I use it to attach a right angle quote to the end of a link's text to make sure it wraps with the last word:
<a>Some amount of text here »</a>
<a>Some amount of text here »</a>
That will keep "here" and the arrows together. It'll keep you from getting a random 1 line of text and 1 line with just >>
It's still "nubsip" in my head. Sometimes, "nubusp".
My internal voice always says "noobspace." I don't know why.
Feeling kind of dump but my brain associated it with "no blank space" during my training time back then even though I knew it produced a blank space and ever since was wired to that term.
Should get used to the real meaning 😂
So many of these things we rarely question!
Sharing the knowledge is > keeping it to yourself.
nbsp; = never boil smelly potatoes;
You can't tell me what to do

Yep, and there's also &sp; which is a "breaking space".
Been a user of for a loooong time. A number of entities and ALT-key glyphs. Has confused many a co-worker, over the years, that I so frequently type characters from my number key pad (and that I've got so many memorized).
I knew this 💪 #10xdev
I'm surprised that this has stirred up so much surprise. I must have read it in the first books or tutorials I read, but I always said "non-breaking space", "ampersand", etc., in my head. 🤔🤔
And here I was the opposite. Remembering "Non Breaking Space" was how I always remembered that the code was
Such a honest tweet!
It’s crazy how many things in different languages we use, that have strange starts.
Btw what the hell is a tuple...
Double, triple, quadruple, quintuple, sextuple, septuple, and so on. It's the generalization of a grouping of things, an n-tuple is group of n things. Although, I always read tuple as too-pull, not tupp-ell as it's pronounced in quintuple.
Always makes me think of:
I had a feeling that everyone knowing a little html would know this thing but I perhaps I had overused it back when it was used for padding/margin !!!
URL - Uniform Resource Locator
URI - Uniform Resource Identifier
I mean it makes sense. But it doesn't make sense that I only learned this.... yesterday lol
I've used this for hacks in my early career more than i'd care to admit....
You should get out more 😜
