We did see something similar to this a while ago. If I recall we were
using the HTMLAREA widget from 5.3 and did not have the proper language
setting set for the site/widget.
Once we reset the language option for the HTMLAREA widget the problem
was resolved. I believe that it was related to the interpretation of
white-space and the UTF-8 character set.
However, if you are not using the widget, then this would not apply.
