[Fixed] help.html file a bit off

The bottom of the page is formatted a bit weird - nothing big.

If you're at it

Another tiny, not-so-noticeable bug. There are extra spaces is some of the launchers' internal names. For example "LibreOffice  Portable", or "LibreOffice  Base Portable".

Hm... This forum has somewhat strange formatting and shows a double or triple space as a single one.

My posts are old and likely no longer relevant.

HTML spacing

In HTML, multiple consecutive whitespace characters are merged to one by default (c.p. CSS white-space property).

That's actually standard HTML

That's actually standard HTML as described by the spec, any amount of whitespace is automatically reduced to a single space If you want to show double spaces you'll have to use the "No-Break Space" character, which appears just like a normal space, except that 1) it's not whitespace so it won't get reduced down to a single space, and 2) if you use it between words, they will stay on the same line (it will treat them like one single really long word).

To use the "no-break space" in windows just hold down the Alt key, and type (on the number pad) 0160, when you release the Alt key it will insert the "no-break space", or to use it in an HTML document (e.g. a post on this site) type

Thanks

Sincere thanks to both of you for the info. Learned something new today as well. Smile

Don't get this wrong, but as a non-English speaker I use Unicode a lot (also like to conceitedly think of myself as resourceful Blum ). An alternative whitespace character was already used, hence the post looking properly formatted. Though I appreciate you not replying directly in case I wanted to edit my post.

I like that,

"I'm resourceful" sounds better than "I'm the kind of nerd who memorizes alt-codes".
