Description Rune Schjellerup 2004-07-16 12:23:18 UTC
Version:           3.0.4 (using KDE 3.2.2, Gentoo)
Compiler:          gcc version 3.3.3 20040412 (Gentoo Linux 3.3.3-r6, ssp-3.3.2-2, pie-8.7.6)
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.7-gentoo-r7

When programming php on a dk keyboard you have to press AltGr+4 to write '$' a lot of times. This results in the problem that it's easy to press AltGr+space once in a while. AltGr+space looks like a normal space but the php parser complains and your code doesn't work.
Since you can't see the weird space (unless you find a font that displays it differently i guess) you have to rewrite the entire line to correct the problem.

This could be solved with an option to make all characters visible, as with Open Office's 'Nonprinting characters' option.
