Correct Biography

I am trying to make corrections to my existing IMDb Pro biography. IMDb continues to prevent it and shows a code which makes no sense to anyone other than an IT expert: "The Unicode character at code point 8203 [​] is not supported." I don't know what that means and there are no numbers showing in my bio so I have no clue where 8203 is. It's very frustrating to be a Pro member and have to submit something purely vanilla and keep getting it blocked for no reason. Any thoughts? Thanks

Hello George, 
I'm not surprised you're baffled. It is a very obscure & misleading error message. 
 
What it means is that there's a strange character in what you're submitting that the IMDb system can't deal with. 
 
Unicode character #8203 is a "Zero Width Space". 
 
Did you copy & paste it from somewhere else? Try overtyping everything, replacing it all with characters actually typed in.

Steve, you're a genius! It worked.  Guess I need to get an IT degree if I want to navigate IMDb.  Thanks so much.  George
