JavaScript space character


If you write 10 spaces in your text, the browser will remove 9 of them. To add real spaces to your text, you can use the &nbsp; character entity.

var a = 'something' + '&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp' + 'something';

document.body.innerHTML = a;

Space in JavaScript console

    var a = 'something' + '\xa0\xa0\xa0\xa0\xa0\xa0\xa0' + 'something';

You could compare with “==” instead of “===” and use ‘\xa0’ for comparing &nbsp; which is the actual character for non-breaking space.
