In Sigil the thin spaces appear as a very bold, fat letter I.

In ADE the thin spaces appear as question marks.

What basic, foolish error have I made now?
The only error is that you did not read my post just ahead of the one you posted. The problem is that the reading application, i.e. Sigil and ADE does not have a nonbreaking thinspace or perhaps even a thinspace in the character fonts it is using. Sigil has some other character for that number and ADE has nothing so it presents a ? character. You need to use a small   or else embed a font character set that has what you want. Personally I would go with shrinking a space.

Another possible error is that the file is not unicode or is not specified as unicode.

You're absolutely right. I should read stuff more slowly and carefully <b>especially</b> when I know there's so much I don't know.

Your elucidation is most helpful, thank-you.

In my defence, I have warned everyone that I'm a slow learner

Finally, as a word of warning, just as the more I learn the less I know, one answer here invariably prompts many more questions!
