      You probably meant non-breaking spaces which are hex A0. Unless they show as question marks when opened in the normal way, they are within the 256 ansi-supported characters.

      You can see what it is (in hex) by highlighting it and running this clip:

      ^!Info \x^$IntToHex(^$CharToDec(^$StrCopyLeft("^$GetSelection$";1)$)$)$

      You can replace (in the current document) all non-breaking spaces with normal spaces using:

      ^!Replace "\xA0" >> "\x20" RAWS0
