We are working with an online survey and are coming across one character that when inserted adds a space after it. The text is
Will having a space between the inserted Chinese text for the user group and the inserted text for the product alter the meaning or make this an awkward sentence?

| I don't see any space in this sentence. || Dec 8, 2007 |
But if you are referring to the Chinese parenthesis "（" and "）", I would say that it adds space to a sentence but does not alter the meaning or make the sentence awkward.
In Chinese, punctuation marks can either be "full shape" or "half shape". Here you have a full shape punctuation mark inserted, taking up the same space as a normal character. (which is a little bit like "monospace" typeface in English)
Using full shape punctuation marks, you don't have to type a space after the punctuation (for it looks like you have typed a space already~).

| global replace helpful? || Dec 8, 2007 |
Does the unwanted space occur everytime you want to use that character?
What about pasting the same character (without the space) from another document, and then using the global replace function?
