• Hm, sadly the page broke my little extra message in the title. Doesn't matter, the main puzzle is in the text body and still works. – Fabian Röling Aug 22 '18 at 16:03
• So then, Is my answer going in the right direction? – Joe-You-Know Aug 23 '18 at 15:38
• @Joe-You-Know Yes. – Fabian Röling Aug 23 '18 at 23:07
• TO EVERYONE WANTING TO EDIT THIS PUZZLE: The site has a bug which means that it cannot be edited without removing the essential part of the puzzle. Please do not edit it! I know that the tag isn't ideal, but I can't do anything about it. – Fabian Röling Jan 26 at 20:29
• @FabianRöling Would using an appropriate HTML entity (&#65279; or &zwnj; for a similar character) instead of the literal character be an acceptable compromise? I understand it may essentially reveal a secret to anybody editing, but the secret is shared knowledge at this point anyhow. – Will Jan 27 at 6:34

So I noticed

After some letters (it seems to be random) is the character &#65279 which is Unicode Character 'ZERO WIDTH NO-BREAK SPACE' (U+FEFF)

Here is what it actually is

I 😊 po😊s😊ed 😊a 😊s😊imila😊r 😊c😊h😊a😊lle😊nge😊 t😊o😊 some😊one and😊 😊i😊t😊 ap😊pe😊a😊re😊d😊 😊t😊o 😊b😊e😊 s😊uf😊fic😊iently 😊h😊ard😊 😊tha😊t😊 I😊'😊l😊l😊 p😊o😊s😊t 😊it😊 h😊e😊re😊.😊 😊Soo😊o😊...😊 Find😊 the hi😊d😊de😊n m😊es😊s😊s😊a😊ge😊! It's😊s rig😊ht here!

This is where,

😊 = &#65279

• Hello! so is this the right answer? – jwi Aug 23 '18 at 15:51
• @jwi, I'd like to know as well... – Joe-You-Know Aug 23 '18 at 15:51
• @jwi Well, it's a part of it. Of course these characters are not distributed randomly, there's a message hidden. – Fabian Röling Aug 23 '18 at 23:17
• How did you notice the unicode character? I just see plain text except for the second spoiler tag you put – R.D Aug 24 '18 at 4:17
• @R.D I'm I web designer currently. Using the inspect element is second nature to me now. Especially if I suspect that their could be hidden code. – Joe-You-Know Aug 24 '18 at 5:05
