Does this site look broken?. Use the LitterTray web for test cases.

I notice that a page which had a bulleted list, %TOPICLIST{" * $web.$name"}% to be precise, after editing with the WysiwygPlugin the tab before the bullet was converted into a single space. Of course, the list would not render correctly after that. Manually typing in 3 spaces does not help either.

Moreover, I could not find a way of inserting a tab using WysiwygPlugin; the tab key suddenly does not insert text, and pasting a tab just creates a single space also.

(This time on my own installation smile )

Argh yes. I was asked by the client to removed special interpretation of % variables, and I'm afraid this is one of the side-effects. It would be extremely difficult to make WysiwygPlugin space-preserving, because of the way it works - translation into the DOM, and then translation back.

I need to think about this; but for now, use the textarea to edit variables. The theory is that most contributors who use the Wysiwyg editor are unlikely to be editing variables anyway.

Tab insertion is a limitation of Kupu (of all browser-based input, AFAIK) due to the special interpretation of tab. Again, not much I can do about that, I'm afraid.

I'm going to discard this; if you feel strongly about the easting of spaces in embedded strings, please raise it again in TWiki:Plugins.WysiwygPluginDev and I'll try to schedule it for a future release.
