That's the UTF-8 encoding for the NBSP U+00A0. I don't see any problem

That's the problem, or one of the problems (the other is the encoding in the
HTTP headers). All you have to do is to track down where it comes from.

Also normal for a UTF-8 encoding. Note that characters in the Unicode range
U+0080..U+00FF are encoded as 2 bytes (I think the range is actually larger).
