Additional information

I don’t understand. Post a screen recording of this happening in the sandbox vault and attach a copy of the notes where this happens.

I think they mean this but admit I don’t know what’s going on here. Funky website?

The linked webpage:

Pasted into Obsidian with cmd + v (rendered / Reading view):

If you type into Obsidian

Normally, in markdown, those are: a, blockquote, br, code, em, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, img, li, ol, p, pre, strong, and ul

and add the backticks yourself

Normally, in markdown, those are: `a`, `blockquote`, `br`, `code`, `em`, `h1`, `h2`, `h3`, `h4`, `h5`, `h6`, `hr`, `img`, `li`, `ol`, `p`, `pre`, `strong`, and `ul`

the rendered output / Reading view doesn’t have the &nbsp;s and looks normal.

Oh, I’ve recorded a video that could serve as an explanation. Would it be helpful?
