Trying to update my BIO, but it keeps saying this: The Unicode character at code point 8203 [​] is not supported.

Tryin to update my BIO, but it keeps saying this: The Unicode character at code point 8203 [​] is not supported. What does this mean? I've tried retyping the entire thing, didn't work. I've checked everything. I do not know what to do? Any help is much appreciated. This has never happened before.

Hello Jeanne,
Unicode character ​8203 is a zero width space.

Did you copy & paste from something else like a Word document?

You should be able to just remove the 8203 character without affecting anything, if you can identify which character it is.

Thank you, Steve. I did copy & paste only the part I was trying to add, but then read to try and type it. So I retyped the entire thing, but it still not accepting it. I've no idea which character it could be. I keep playing with it, but this is ridiculous.

You need some better tools. If you were using a Unix/Linux system then I could tell you how to do it. Steve

I've never had this happen in the past. I've been on here for years.
