End of Line
Okay Mr. Hyatt, why does Safari (1.2.1 v125.1) insist on adding a space between the last character of a link and the following punctuation mark? All over this site, exclamation points drop to the next line and unsightly spaces appear between commas and periods and the preceding links. Can somebody explain this? Anybody?
Is it simply because I chose to save my eyes and forbade OS X from antialiasing typefaces 12px and below? … Nope, just checked, apparently not. The space is actually being generated. Yes, you can copy the link and the punctuation that follows—and when you paste it into another application the space remains. But view source and there’s nothing there. Am I doing something wrong? Semantically, the punctuation is completely separate from contents of the link. Right?
<span style="voice-family: 'Whiny nihilist with nine-toed girlfriend'">It’s not fair.
