Another British code problem has arisen.
In a word-processed document spaces are not seen in the print and DBT
correctly ignores them. However DBT is treating spaces differently if
they are italicised.

The example below 'This is a test    ' in italics with several italic
spaces at the end. It shows how the closing italics sign is being spaced
from the preceding word.

..,? is a te/ .'

Whilst this error is really due to the error of the originator of the
print it would be better if it did not occur. This error does not seem
to occur if it is in capitals, italic bold, or capital bold.
