I can make a "sworn statement" here:
1. my bank (one of *.pl) did placed a hidden character within account 
numbers of passed (e.g my earlier) bank transferes.
2. my browser (Epiphany) did copy those hidden characters when C-C.
3. but that copied account number was for that same bank invalid, when 
pasted into a new bank transfer panel.

As a user, I was seriously p-off.

I'd rather see them all.... *at least* as replaced by ordinary space 
(which is normally the case of [:newline:] charachter).
