Beginning at some point after Windows version 5.0.4.4, if a hard space character such as the em- and en-spaces is undefined in the font, PageStream inserts an open rectangle glyph at the leading edge of the inserted space. The glyph appears on screen, in PDFs, and probably in printed output. It will also be seen on screen when edited in older versions of the program. However, it can be replaced with the usual character insert shortcuts and saved and printed from the older version. When the "corrected" file is opened in versions after 5.0.4.4 the unwanted rectangle will be back. The document must be printed from an older version.

In a series of exchanges on the mail list dated 9/11/09 with the subject line "Hard spaces inserting visible characters" or "But? Hard spaces inserting visible characters" several correspondents confirmed this behavior on Windows, Linux, and Mac platforms.
