Comes from discussions in bug 1296313. 1) If you have a page like: data:text/html,test test then the space between the 2 words looks like a plain space character in the inspector and you have no way of knowing that it's not. 2) If you have a page like: data:text/html,<span>test</span> <span>test</span> then the text node between the 2 spans is going to be displayed in the inspector as a small circle (since bug 1304685, so at least you see it), but hovering over it is going to show an empty tooltip. I think we should render space-like characters that aren't plain ASCII spaces with a specific symbol. Proposal 1: use the small circle introduced in bug 1304685 instead of rendering the white space character when displaying text in the inspector. And, have a tooltip for it that displays the actual HTML entity code. (this works well with what we already have for whitespace-only text nodes) Proposal 2: display the HTML entity code directly in the inspector, maybe with a gray background. (this would force us to change the way we currently display whitespace-only text nodes).
