help on String

Hi all,

I have a question regarding displaying a string in javascript. Ok, I have a collection of string in a variable and i am iterating it through a loop for display. Each string has spaces that seperate column 1 from column 2, but both columns are in one string. For example:

This is my string 1Also my string 1.
This is my sring 2Also my string 2.

Where = empty white space.
The problem is, when it display in the brower (in my html table), all the spaces get striped off. So, it looks like this:

This is my string 1 Also my string 1.
This is my string 2 Also my string 2.

I don't understand why it does that. Is it because of javascript?
How would i go about in displaying the string the way it suppose to look?

Please replay. Thanks.

    Normal space characters (#32) are always compacted to 1 space by browsers. It is part of the HTML specification. To get multiple spaces after each other use the "non breaking space" code: " ".
