Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is a defect in developers application code/rules. Explained to the developer that it is not PRPC that removes the unwanted spaces in between words. It is the browser that removes it. Provided the PDN article that explains the same.


Developer should store the data in the database without the unwanted spaces so as to maintain data integrity. Alternatively, use the   tag if maintaining space is critical to application.
