GeneralWhy VS2010 and Excel suck today Pin

I'm in the process of generating updated content for user documentation. I'm compiling error message/what it means/what to do data in Excel. My initial pass involved checking the text of each messagebox/etc against the contents of the error spreadsheet from the prior version. For any new error messages I initially just pasted the text from VS to Excel and kept going.

Once that was completed I attempted to use the message text I'd pasted into excel to find the code in VS so I could make sure I had the context right when writing the rest of the information. VS consistently failed to find anything I'd copied into excel (while working normally for anything else, including stuff that was in the spreadsheet from the last version).

Eventually after copying the seemingly identical VS and Excel text into a text file and opening it up a hex editor I discovered that everything I'd copied into excel today had normal spaces replaced with nonbreaking spaces (0x20 vs 0xA0). ARGH!!!!!!!!

I'm not sure if I should be blaming VS, Excel, or the VS extension (part of MS's productivity power tools set) that lets me copy out of VS while preserving the syntax highlighting; but either way I just lost most of an hour trying to figure out WTF was going on. D'Oh! | :doh:
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
