IE - &nbsp not honored in table cells

Reported by: Lynne Kues Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: Core : Tables Version: 3.4.3
Keywords: IBM Cc:


Go to CKEditor demo. Paste attached html into source view. Attempt to select all the cells in the table. &nbsp characters are not selected. Click on right hand side of cell. &nbsp is not honored (cursor goes to extreme left hand side of the cell).

This is a regression from 3.4.2. As there is no feedback in IE when selecting empty table cells, we are relying on &nbsp to provide feedback for our users. Not having any feedback is confusing to our users.

This is "per design".

We output   on empty cells to avoid browsers collapsing them on the final output page. At the same time, we don't want to have the user mistakenly typing after our automatically added  , so we remove them when loading the data into the editor. After all, the user didn't want to have the spaces on the cells, so all this happens transparently.

If your application is instead adding the &nbsp; into the cells, you'll have to enclose them inside a <span> tag, to indicate the editor that this is a custom space.
