The regular space
) (as opposed
, the nonbreaking space) is one of the most popular characters in the ASCII character set
. Unfortunately, links
don't seem to show up at all, except when they are between other characters
, so I'm going to have a hard time
making links to this node. (You can use the pipe to make them more easily linkable though: this node
) Worse yet, if you follow a link written as ([ ]) then everything just hangs*, while a link written as ([ ]) brings you here.
* Sometimes, instead of hanging, it generates a Software error with instructions for reporting it (which I have followed), or just goes to the Everything2 home page instead.
Update: I have since learned that Everything stores node titles in its database with the HTML character entities intact, so this node is actually saved as a five-character string ampersand-pound-three-two-semicolon, rather than as a regular space; this is how we end up with junk like Moxy Früvous and Moxy Früvous. Single-character non-alphanumeric nodes were really broken, as indicated by the bug I described above, so they are currently disabled on Everything; links to such nodes jump to the front page.
Also, there's a node   which is not properly linkable because there's also a user of the same name, and on the "user or e2node" page the links are isolated spaces which don't actually display a link in most browsers.
There's another doozie of a node at nodeid 366125. Links to it usually don't work, and take you to the front page instead. But apparently at a couple times, single-character non-alphanumeric links (and high-ascii, etc. like ß) went there. It's soft-linked below, though you won't see anything but a blank space. This is the node with a completely blank title. Paste this into your URL bar: http://everything2.com/index.pl?node_id=366125&lastnode_id=403662
Further update: both the node with no title and the second of the Moxy Früvous nodes listed above have ceased to exist.
