Ticket #6060 (closed bug: duplicate)
Cannot compress jquery.ui.core.js with YUI Compressor (caused by non-breaking space character)
|Reported by:||stevekwan||Owned by:|
On line 27 of the uncompressed version of the jQuery UI core, there is a non-breaking space character (hex code 0xA0). This is what's causing the YUI Compressor problems. The line reads:
var proto = $.ui[ module ].prototype;
The space between "module" and "]" is actually a character with hex code 0xA0. I assume it should be a regular space. Replacing this character with a normal space fixes the problem, and allows the file to be compressed with the YUI Compressor.
This issue also appears in jquery.ui.tabs.js v1.8.4 on line 606. I've filed a separate bug report for this.
