    Post how do I get firefox to ignore certain html standards?


    a couple of years ago I was teaching myself html, and one of the things I learned is that if an html document has multiple whitespace characters between two words (and by words I mean any text at all), it will render it as one space.

    This is perhaps the most annoying things about html; I want to be able to send ascii art in emails, and on instant messaging; however I can't because of this idiotic standard. So I started trying to find out if my web browser (firefox version 3.6.22) could be configured to ignore this, but so far the answer seems to be no.

    I just thought I would check on the forums to see if any has ever tried this, and if they had any success.

    Otherwise you can write the space in HTML code and comply with the standards: &nbsp; = one space &nbsp;&nbsp; = two spaces and so on...
