I don't know if this has happened to other hubbers or how many of you even do this but, as a matter of course, I usually put scientific names in Latin in italics in brackets after the English manes of plants and animals I am writing about. Recently I discovered that in most of my hubs where I had done this there is now an unwanted space after the last letter in the brackets.
This is really annoying because it means I have to meticulously go though all my hubs that have flora and fauna in them and edit top remove the spaces that I never put there in the first place! It makes me look as if I am a sloppy writer who doesn't check over his work which is not the case!
If you are a writer that uses this practice of enclosing botanical and zoological names in brackets too I would check your hubs and see if you have the same problem as I do!
Do you observe this formatting issue only on existing Hubs or is a space being inserted in new Hubs that contain square brackets?
I wonder if it is a combination of square brackets and italics.
Do you have an example Hub I can look at?
It is not with square brackets but with this type: ()
Yes, the problem is only on already existing hubs but that makes it a big problem because many are about flora and fauna and it means I have to go through correcting them all. Here is an example I left with the spaces showing: http://tenerifeislander.hubpages.com/hu … water-fish
Ah, so it is related to parenthesis () .
I have sent this issue to our engineering team to see if they can determine what might be the cause.
Thanks for bringing it to our attention and your continued patience.

I am a writer who often puts the scientific name in italics enclosed in brackets after the name of a species of flower or animal I have been writing about. This is standard practice by authors who write on such matters....

I noticed that if I do a google search for my hubs I can not find a single one that links directly to my hub page. I have tried by searching the link and by the titles in parenthesis. I did this just days ago to see...

It seems like a minor bug where, if you have two Amazon capsules side by side, then it puts the one capsule a bit below it...Looks really crappy and has excess white space.Just noticed it today, but it's popping up all...

I just thought I'd share this, in case anybody else pastes into hubs directly from Google docs.Apart from the weird spacing thing that seems to be typical of pasting from many word processors, if you paste from Google...
