Summary0002041: Extra space with default "no more room" message in a full container.
DescriptionWith Inform library v6.12.1 SD, an extra space is printed in the default "There is no more room in...." in between the words "There" and "is".

In the library source I have, this can be seen in english.h, lines 942-944, case 7 of the Insert: switch statement.

Transcript of game play below. Identical in Glulx and Zcode, of course.

From these simple beginnings, who knows what might develop?

The "Description" block on this website has "helpfully" edited out the double-space that shows up during gameplay (it was here when I pasted it in, gone once I hit submit).

That's actually a feature of HTML where whitespace is condensed.
