Steps to reproduce

driver is returning non-breaking spaces (\u00A0) for some reason

driver = Selenium::WebDriver.for :edge ""
driver.keyboard.send_keys 'ab'
expect(driver.find_element(id: 'body_result').text).to eq('keypress keypress')
# => false

If you inspect the element in DOM explorer, there aren’t any whitespaces at all

    • Thank you for your feedback. Although you see “keypress keypress” as output on your browser, your sample doesn’t actually generate “keypress keypress” which you can see by using your browser’s dev tool.  

      Here is your generated HTML and Webdriver output : 

      HTML created : 
      <div id="body_result">
        keypress keypress </div>

      Webdriver output : 
      "\n   &nbsp;\n keypress keypress "

      Best regards,
