Description (partial)


If you were to copy/paste the raw message out of the MARS gui from a query/report it will include a hidden hyphen that is not really in the raw message.

This can cause any custom parsers you create to fail, as this it not really in the raw message coming in from the Device.

When looking at the raw HTML that is created by the MARS, the extra character appears to be a "soft hyphen" or known as a ­ in html.

Appears to happen to longer raw messages
