Steps to reproduce
Edge does not use a normal whitespace in copy operations from websites. The resulting copy will appear to have normal spaces but will fail to compile or be interpreted by languages such as C and PHP.
Example: Code snippets copied from http://php.net copied in Edge and pasted into VS Code or another editor will fail.
See attached image for example using PHP and VS Code.
