I came across a strange thing just now. I have a browser extension that creates and downloads an internet shortcut file (.url) of the current page. I used it on the following page, and the extension broke.
When I examined the question title (and later the contents of the question), I noticed that there are many unnecessary
­ entities in the post. Here's a screenshot of the post content:
The extension is using the window/document title as the file name, and these entities are not allowed in a file name.
I checked the edits and saw that the last edit introduced these
­ entities, and I seem to fail to understand the need for them.
So I'm curious. Was this intentional? Or is it the result of some glitch?
