remove the space. I've tried:
$sentence = str_replace(" .", ".", $sentence);
but it does not work. I've tried other ways with no success.
Why doesn't this work and how do I do this?
Re: Help removing a simple space
Maybe they are not spaces (ASCII 32). Could be some other white-space
characters, like TAB (ASCII 9) or FF (ASCII 12). Remember that viewing
text through a browser compresses runs of white-space down to a single
visual space. Look at the HTML source to be sure, ideally using a text
viewer or hex-editor that can highlight different kinds of white-space.
If that's the case look at regular expression functions eg
