Operating system version

Windows 7, Windows 8.1

Description of the issue

A calculation of:

Substitute ( text ; "-" ; Char ( 8209 ) )

... should produce a non-break hyphen but on Windows it produces the hyphen with a trailing space.  Attached screen shot shows left side results on Mac (Maverick), right side results on Windows (7).

Steps to reproduce the problem

Create a text field with FX-44 then create the calculation above and observe the results.

It should produce only a non-break hyphen like it does on Mac ... without the trailing space.

Actual result

non-break hyphen with a space
